Power of the tongue

The truth is that conflict will arise in marriages and in all types of relationships. It’s inevitable… one of the biggest revelations I have had since Coming to Christ is understanding the power of my words. Concerning marriages I’ve learned how to bridle my tongue, picking and choosing my battles. Not everything requires a response. Especially when anger is involved. I never try to sweep an issue under the rug, but I do hold off on a response until I have fully composed myself. Until the anger has subsided. Immediate responses motivated by emotions tend to be the wrong responses. The tongue can either incite a fire or calm a storm. Consider your words carefully, consider your responses carefully. You can’t control what others say and do but you can control what YOU say and do. #idefinefatherhood #Jesus #marriage #husbandandwife #love
