Bite Thy Tongue

1Peter 5:8, NIV: Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
It is the holiday season. And being so often means getting together with friends and
relatives. As such, we know that we can sometimes grate on one another's
nerves. In those times, we can be tempted to say things we feel have needed to be said for a long time--things we feel we have a right to express. But may God encourage us to exercise the proper self-control so that our words will be seasoned with salt, administered with grace and always in truth that is spoken in love.
