Ephesians 4.31 Take up the strongest possible position against every form of distorted behavior in your own life. Do not allow yourself to be spiteful; outbursts of violent emotion and rage do not become you. You don’t have to shout in order to make your point. People must feel safe in your conversation; therefore, slander and hurtful words (blasphemy) are out! 32 Be inspired by kindness and compassion; your forgiving one another when you might feel irritated and frustrated demonstrates the way God graciously treated us in Christ. The Mirror
I have to remind myself …. is this how God treats me the way I’m treating this person? Does this person I am interacting with feel safe around me?
There is truth to the phrase you can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar
