Wisdom From the Word
“Post this at all the intersections, dear friends: Lead with your ears, follow up with your tongue, and let anger straggle along in the rear. God’s righteousness doesn’t grow from human anger.” – James 1:19,20 (The Message)
“Take good counsel and accept correction-that’s the way to live wisely and well.” – Proverbs 19:20 (The Message)
Keep Me Real, Lord!
“Help me to welcome and value my mate’s perspective, opinions, wants and needs. When we are in conflict, help me to make my goal one of understanding my partner’s position while I grow in my ability to speak my truth. Help us together to build an “US” that is built on the foundation of mutual respect even if we don’t always see eye to eye.
