Tongue Meditations: Weakness

Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins. Do not take to heart all the things that people say, lest you hear your servant cursing you. Your heart knows that many times you have yourself cursed others. All this I have tested by wisdom. I said, "I will be wise," but it was far from me. Ecclesiastes 7:20-23


Am I continuing to strive to be wise in my words, patient, gentle, etc. even though I know I will fall short continually?

Am I humble and contrite in my failings, quick to bring them before the Lord and seek His help to overcome them?

Am I gentle toward others and quick to forgive when they sin against me, knowing that I myself have oftened sinned in the same way?

God is REALLY dealing with me in regards to my words, and the way that they have been tearing down instead of healing. I did it again yesterday with my sister; spoke my mind instead of keeping my mouth shut.

Just when I think I'm doing ok in the things of Christ...
