Refining Our Rants

Our instinct is to rant at people who have offended us, but lashing out at those who have wronged us is not effective or loving. Refining our rants means taking the opinions we have and the raw emotion we feel and backing them up with facts. It means taking an honest look at our ideas to find the best way to communicate them to other people.

Some things, God tells us, we will never know because His ways are higher than our ways (Isaiah 55:9), and some of His plans He keeps sealed until the end of time (Revelation 10:4).

Proverbs 15:4 – “A gentle tongue is a tree of life...

A family of gentle speech, a church where people speak kindly, an office with such conversation, is like a Garden of Paradise where one would want to live forever. Could there be higher praise than to compare something to a tree of life, which bestows immortality?
