A kind word turn away wrath. This is a hard lesson my friends. Sometimes it is best to be silent even. But the flesh is wicked. It wants to argue, it wants to debate, It wants to cause confusion, or even get wicked and call men and women foul names, even in the presence of children. Lord God I am sorry.. If I cuss help me not cuss. Help me to say a kind word and God please give me much wisdom to discern when I should speak, when I should stay silent, and when I should have a kind word. Also God help me to NEVER forsake correction.
For an open rebuke is better then any kissed wound the enemy caused with their lies. if someone tells you here do a line of cocaine. What kind of friend is this? So you want me to die? or even worst be addicted unto death? If someone says here do this heroin and their lives are broken, and they know by doing such, your life will be broken, is this a friend, my friends?
Is a friend someone who pushes you off a bridge? or someone who says go ahead and jump? Some people will take you to the cliff and celebrate when you are in distress and push you off. And they will rejoice in doing so. So what kind of friend is this? I myself want no part of these friends. In my life I am learning as I get older the people who loved me are the ones who say. Guys don’t steal. Why? because if you get caught you will go to jail. It will hinder your life better to get a job,. Better to work two jobs then become a prisoner of an institution and that is truth friends!
it comes hard to over come when you get one strike against, you then two, Then good luck with that prison life. Do you know men and women get raped in prison daily? So much I could say about such things. But seriously now is not that time. I believe in God so instead I pray. God help you repent from your evil ways in Jesus name Amen. For your good and benefit and if that makes me the bad guy I will be such. For good friends are hard to come by. or maybe I am special? Sure seems to be that way in my life anyways. Something to consider. I love you and I pray the truth lead us not to hatred but instead into repentance my friends and that is my prayers. God bless us and give us strength to turn away from our evil ways in Jesus name Amen! I Michelle love people as I believe does God, but time for us to come out sin. let”s be honest God says sin not for reasons.! God bless us and help us Lord!
Proverbs 15 King James Version (KJV)
15:1-4 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. 2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness. 3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. 4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.
James 3:8-14 King James Version (KJV)
8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. 10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
Proverbs 27:5 King James Version (KJV)
