IF I COULD SAY IT OVER AGAIN #9. “Well, at least I never – “

Home/Blog/IF I COULD SAY IT OVER AGAIN #9. “Well, at least I never – “

You never? Uh huh. This phrase is a way to shift attention from yourself, your foibles and faults by pointing out the mistake(s) of someone else. When you appraise the sin levels of others you’re only making a selfish attempt to feel better about yourself. It smacks of pride. Instead, the beautiful words, “I’m sorry” will go a long way. Before moralizing and boasting, it’s far better to listen and show compassion.

I could have added more to this list – but I thought these ten were enough to chew on for now. I ask myself how many times do I glibly say things that might tear down instead of build up another person?

I believe the key is discernment. Discernment with genuine thoughtfulness: we can’t go wrong with those two. Add a dose of God’s love and compassion and we’ll make a big difference in our relationships.

Do you have some “never say” phrases you’d like to share? Send them to me here and I”ll post them!
