I’m so thankful to have been the recipient of gracious encouragement and correction as needed over the years. When has it been most effective? When I’ve know that the person cares deeply for me and truly wants what is best for me. Asking the Lord to guard my heart and bridle my tongue and not let anything out other than what would honor Him or lift up my neighbor. This passage reminds us to be prayerful, thankful, and gracious.
