Words of Wisdom Governed by Love

1Samuel 2:3 (ESV)

3 Talk no more so very proudly,
let not arrogance come from your mouth;
for the Lord is a God of knowledge,
and by him actions are weighed.

*This morning, God wants us to examine our actions and our motives behind them. A lot of times believers will use God's word to bible beat people, make themselves seem superior, or correct individuals out of haughtiness rather than love or adhering to what God is telling you to say to that person. Remember, God sees the real motive behind what we do and why we do things. If you do it to appease yourself or put people in their place, that is a major difference than providing love and wisdom as guided by our Father. We must learn the difference between loving corrections vs playing God and judging. Just because we may know more and implement more than another individual, it doesn't mean that our intentions are pure. Today, I invite you to examine your heart...What are you really saying without actually saying it, why are you saying it, and were you led to say it in the first place? This is not a time to be silent, but it's also not a time to hide behind aggression and call it love.
