My eight-year-old granddaughter amazes me. The other day I was talking to my daughter about changing my hairstyle because of an insulting comment somebody made to me. My granddaughter listened and then said,”MeMa, it’s more important what’s on the inside than what’s on the outside!” She was right. The comment is something that I should just let go.
I have, in the past, put mouth before brain and made comments that were not appropriate myself. In James 3:8 it says, “…but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.” But knowing that God has started a good work in me and He will complete it comforts me, (Philippians 1:6.) Also, there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus, (Romans 8:1.) All we have to do is admit our sin and turn from it and God will forgive us. If we seek forgiveness from others and seek to live in peace with others as much as it is possible for us, that is all God asks of us (Romans 12:18.) I will trust God to work on what is inside me! I am blessed to have such a wonderful granddaughter!
