Our Voice is a Sword or an Anvil Good Day, Friends; There are times in our lives when we truly wish that we could take back something that we have said. Spontaneous statements without thinking or remarks made in anger are those statements which can be hurtful to those around us. Thoughtfulness in our conversations is something that we should all strive for. Proverbs 13:3 (NLT) tells us, "Those who control their tongue will have a long life; a quick retort can ruin everything." Consider the feelings of others and please use kindness in all that you do and especially when speaking with others. May God Bless.
