Have you ever responded to a message too quickly? Have you then regretted your response?
I have to fess up to doing just that, recently. I will typically think before I speak, but I let other circumstances dictate my behavior and I was just plain rude, to someone I love dearly.
I am feeling huge guilt, and this morning I read a blog from FEBC.org and the first words I see are “Lead with your ears, follow up with your tongue”. Too bad I hadn’t seen that advice before I gave such a cursory reply to my friend.
James 1:19 is where we can find this advice can be found. Do you need a little grace too? Take a look at this passage and let God’s words soften your heart too.
