James 3:2-Offending Others

For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.

We are far from perfect and we all make mistakes.  Sometimes we may not even realize that our words may offend others, and of course we are not mind readers so we may not even know what their thinking or feeling.  But God knows how to help us and if we don't turn to him we may not be able to realize just how wrong we are.  Let us pray to God asking him to show us when we are wrong, let us ask him to help us not to offend our brothers & sisters but to speak words of kindness and love.

Let us pray

Dear Jesus we thank you for your Love.  Show us how to love our fellow brothers & sisters.  Help us to watch what we say to others and even behind their backs.  We want to live like you and for you. So guide our words deeds and actions that they only be of you.  We thank you, In Jesus name, Amen
