Day 4 - Don't Argue
James 1:19 ESV
Know this, my beloved brothers; let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.
Choose today to not argue. Give the gift of silence. Yes, I know they deserve for you to correct them, straighten them or set them on the right track. But today, choose to show love through silence.
So often, we want to give others a piece of our mind. Perhaps they are being rude or just down right mean. Or maybe we are correcting others because we love them and want to see them have all that GOD has for them. Yet, our frustrated rants only send them in the opposite direction.
Prove your love today in silence. Not a rude, I'm going to wait until you speak to me first, kind of silence. But a silence where you stop speaking in the physical realm and you begin speaking in the spiritual realm. Go to war today, but do it on your knees as you talk to our Heavenly FATHER. Stand in the gap for your loved ones and even for that co-worker who is determined to make your life miserable. They are human also, and it may be that the prayers you pray are just what they are in need of in this season of their lives.
Make a list today of all the things you refrained from saying. Then tomorrow find a scripture that counteracts the things you wanted to say. Then declare these scriptures over your life and the life of your loved ones.
