W.o.G. Wednesday: Ephesians 4:32, Proverbs 20:11

I have a horrible confession to make. Today I was less than kind to the very man I was created to be a helpmate for. In an attempt to defend my opinion, I said things that were belittling, rude, cutting, and unkind.

Tonight, on my way to pick J up from the airport, Cutie Face and I listened to our ABC Verses CD. The second Bible verse/song cut right through me:

"Be kind to one another for this is right in the Lord". The sing-songy voices of the kids played over and over in my head: "Be, Be kind, be kind to one another" and I replayed my earlier conversation with J. UGH.

Then the "E" verse came along..."Even a child is known by his actions". This made me much more are we, as adults, called into account and known for our actions since we know better!?!

Who knew a kids' Bible Verse CD could be so convicting and so humbling? I'm very grateful for it and its timely reminder!

Ephesians 4:32

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Even a child is known by his actions, by whether his conduct is pure and right.

PS: Here is the CD--it is only $3.99 as an MP3!

So honest to admit that. I tend to be the harshest with my husband when in fact I should honor him above anyone else on this earth! Very good post!

You are not alone. I did the same today and used hormones as an excuse! Thank you for the verse and honest word of encouragement. I'm off to apologize...

Thanks for this great post - I, too, am so guilty of this. Why is it that we can be so harsh on the one's closest to us? Thanks again for humbling me as well. And yes, where did you get this CD?
