Something I struggle with, especially in our home, is keeping my tongue at bay. I sometimes say mean things (whether intentionally or not), sometimes annoying things, sometimes frivolous things. Today I attempted to refrain from saying things that don’t build you up (Eph. 4:29). Dang! it was tough. I realized how much I say that tests your patience. You’re astounding, though, because you typically respond in gentleness and with patience. Although one day doesn’t form a habit, at least I’m more aware of how I use my words in our home.
