Have you ever been guilty of speaking to your wife or children more harshly than anyone else? Some people must think I should be able to act like a feel around my family. I have to ask you to think about it. Is that fair? You are supposed to love them the most and yet you treat them like you love them the least. If you think about it, it is unfair. It is kind of like when you are driving in a car when someone pulls out in from of you. The driver yells at the other driver or curses him. Did it do any good for the bad driver with the windows closed and their backs turned? Only the person in the front seat was subject to that outburst. They didnt do anything. Is that fair?
Another thing I have to remind you of is that the harsh words that you might speak set your person into the course of action that line up with the words that you spoke. Besides being unscriptural to act that way, they have been proven scientifically that negative words and emotions are unhealthy for your physical body. (Mar 11:26) But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
Speaking your words in faith aloud is called framing your world. (Heb 11:3) Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. You will be building a frame for your actions as you become doers of the Word. Think about the harsh words that you are saying to those you love. Do you really want them all to come to pass? (Rom 4:17 and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
Do you really believe them? Another thing is I have heard people say, well, they should love me, why should I have to work at being so polite around them? Please, that is a poor excuse. The ones that you love deserve your effort at politeness more than anyone else. If a man told you that he was madly in love with you, then said to you what a dumb idiot you are, would you believe that he was in love with you? (Jas 3:10) Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
We are instructed to live peaceably together. (Romans 12:18) If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
Harsh Words stir up anger and begin wars. (Proverbs 15:1) A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.(Proverbs 15:2) The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.
It is important that we watch our words. (Ephesians 5:4) Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
Words are important. They are what we live according to. What you say is what you get. (Matthew 4:4) But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Corrupt=means impairment of integrity. When you allow your words to be corrupted, you impair your integrity. (Ephesians 4:29) Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. You are commanded to only allow good words come forth from your mouth which will be found good for the use of edification and minister only grace to those you hear it. Harsh words never help.
When I was first married many years ago, the Lord led me to this scripture. (Ephesians 4:26) Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath. You see, you will have differences of opinion, but differences can be expressed without anger, harshness, or rudeness. And if you do find your temper rising, be sure to forgive each other before you go to bed. Do not ever let it hang on and hang on. Let it go. Anger which is left to fester will turn to bitterness. (Heb 12:15) Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled.
Unresolved anger between husband and wife can hinder prayers from being answered. (1 Peter 3:7) Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
Acting on the Word is critical, but re-acting properly is just as important. (1 Peter 3:8) Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous. (1 Peter 3:9) Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
You reap what you sow. You sow the word of God in a courteous manner, then that is what you will reap. Just keep sowing the seed of His Word and expect Gods answers.
