Well I am back from hols. Thanks to those who said they were looking forward to my blogg after the summer break.
It was a good holiday and I guess most folk are now getting back in to it again what with schools going back and September well under way.
for me yesterday was very busy as expected with a lot of work folk wanting to speak with me and it was quite surprising that I noticed how often , to get the answer that was wanted, I was not always being told the truth!
on reflection, particularly when going back to work and at times of being really busy it is all too easy to say something that one later regrets. Or just to say anything to “get rid of the problem”.
As a Christian and indeed we all must be on guard not to fall into this trap at such times.
interestingly my verse this week talks about this and is…
Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
and those who love it will eat its fruits. (Proverbs 18:21).
so welcome back to work and remember…… Sometimes to say nothing, or to count to ten is a good course of action.
have a good week
