We've all had times when what we write or say just comes out wrong. During those times we need to learn to just laugh at ourselves if what we have done is not offensive. If we have offended someone we need to immediately do what we can to correct the situation. It amazes me that every time it seems Jesus gets trapped by the Scribes and Pharisees, He always says or writes the exact right thing. When tempted in the wilderness by Satan, Jesus would respond with an "It is written... " statement. In an effort to be more like Jesus, let's be swift to hear and slow to speak!

For His Cause,
