Words Matter

The words you choose matter. Take the clip below as an example –

Governor Rick Perry was trying to make the point that in some parts of our culture we are expanding freedoms of expression, while it seems the idea of freedom OF religion has become freedom FROM religion. Instead, because of how the script was written, his words came off as gay bashing and has brought about a massive response of anger.

James 1:19 says – “My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry”

Be measured in your words – because how you say it may not match up with what you mean, and slow in your response – what you hear may not be what is meant.
