Examine Your Words

April 4, 2014

in the generous life

I love truth, but truth spoken without love is one of the more destructive forces in life.

With that in mind, be careful with your choice of words when talking to your husband. 

The harder the discussion, the harder you need to examine your words before they come out of your mouth. Take the time to think through what you want to say. It helps to think of yourself on the receiving end of those words. Would they hurt you? What could you say that would communicate well, but be less hurtful? (and it’s perfectly OK to ask for a break to sort out your thoughts … and words)

There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.  Proverbs 12:18  ESV

“Truth spoken without love is one of the more destructive forces in life.” This is so true, and sadly it is particularly true (it seems to me) among Christians.
