Last week my talk dripped of sarcasm, not at all unusual.
Last week I forgot to press the edit button in my head, and when I thought something, it immediately came racing out of my mouth, and often with a sharp edge.
Last week instead of being funny, I crossed over into being mean.
Last week I wondered what the nonstop moving of my mouth had to do with my family’s overall goal of GIVING.
So I thought and
Oh yeah, I’ve got it.
Part of being able to GIVE to others is to actually be able to see and HEAR their needs. Hearing about the needs of others is impossible when sarcasm is oozing out my mouth.
Thankfully, God has blessed me with a clean, fresh and new week starting today. Actually, starting right now. So my mouth is closed people, and I’m excited to see and HEAR what I’ve been missing.
What about you? Do you struggle with talking over the needs of others?
