Words

Hear me, O God, as I voice my complaint; protect my life from the threat of the enemy. They sharpen their tongues like swords and aim their words like deadly arrows. They plot injustice and say, “We have devised a perfect plan!” Surely the mind and heart of man are cunning. But God…will turn their own tongues against them and bring them to ruin; all who see them will shake their heads in scorn. Let the righteous rejoice in the Lord and take refuge in him; let all the upright in heart praise him! (Psalms 64:1, 3, 6-8, 10 NIV84)

Words can wound, whether intentional or not. But God is a refuge to those who trust in Him and don’t retaliate. ©DailyDevo2012
