Have you ever read something and thought “I agree fully but I wish the delivery would have been a little less harsh”? Maybe you’ve listened as two friends openly discuss a matter of disagreement and walk away feeling like the person who’s opinion you most related to was overshadowed by the loudness or fast talking ability of their opponent.
I’m sure most of you have heard the saying “you attract more flies with honey than vinegar”. This is a saying that I feel many of us can benefit from. Whether it’s using social media, sharing the gospel or even dealing with marital or parental challenges.
"With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father and with it we curse human beings who have been made in God's likeness." James 3:9
Recently with the election season upon us, I’ve noticed an influx of bashing on my newsfeed. It was bound to happen obviously. I have friends who are passionate about their beliefs and passionate about the future of this country, which are both honorable causes to be passionate about. However, there are many times throughout the day where I find myself wishing their delivery was a little more sweet and smooth to digest like honey, instead of reeking of the bitterness of vinegar.
