My mouth has gotten me into more trouble than anything throughout my lifetime. Now, my texting is getting me into trouble. Yesterday, I sent a text to a friend of mine asking him if he wanted to go to lunch one day this week. I made a certain comment that I’ve used with many people before but it upset my friend!
It’s true, he’d asked me not to use those words before but I simply forgot. At first, I wanted to tell him to get over it, but our Lord showed me that would not have been the proper thing for me to do. So, I sent him another text apologizing and asking him for forgiveness!
You see, things that wouldn’t bother me or you just might rub another person the wrong way. When we rub someone the wrong way or offend them we need to try our best to make amends even when the offence comes through a text message!
James 3:2, “For in many ways we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body!”
