Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest. Proverbs 26:2
Have you ever muttered at the incompetent and foolish driver in the car ahead of you? Why? Was the person worthy of a curse? Let me point it back to you, have you ever been incompetent or foolish behind the wheel? Of course you have. We all have. Was it deserving of a curse? Probably not.
We need to be careful with our words. They are powerful and destructive. People are watching and listening.
When you refer to someone as an “idiot” (or worse) whether or not you’re around them, it speaks more about your character than that person’s.
