““‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.”

A putrefying animal carcass covered in flies and exuding an odor reminds us of the consequences of sin and the horror of rebellion against our Creator.
Because of their isolated natural habitats, guppy populations have been used to study the processes of “evolution” in the wild.
Do we live on a young or an old earth? That question was the subject of a debate between Ken Ham and Dr. Jeff Zweerink on a radio show, Unbelievable.

We can be part of our and someone’s peace and goodness by the words we speak or we can be destructive by what we say. 

Fighting with a sword brings pain, blood, wounds, even death, and can be thought of as hand-to-hand combat. When words are fierce and careless, they too can cause wounds, pain, and hurt. However when words are used wisely, they bring healing.  Wouldn’t we rather bring healing, peace, encouragement than hurt, turmoil, and dissent.  Let’s choose words wisely and also the emotions we use to invoke them. It’s not only what we say but how we say it. 

We can disagree and feel passionate about our view, but we can choose words and emotions wisely, and must if we want to succeed and be encouraging. 

Proverbs 12:18 “Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”

If we use fewer words when emotions run high, there will likely be more peace than not. A loud voice may be heard but a screaming voice is out of control. Few good words are better than many bad ones.  

Choose words wisely and speak wisely and practice such wisdom tomorrow and see how it goes. You will like it and be liked for it.

Do we want God to be gentle with us or harsh, overburdening or fair, shouting or speaking reasonably, antagonistic or peaceful, encouraging or demoralizing? Then why don’t we treat others the way we hope God would treat us.
