blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver
Some people speak with intent to hurt.
God says they are wicked.
The righteous strive to heal the hurting.
Ephesians 4 31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and
anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away
from you, with all malice: 32 And be ye kind one to
another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even
as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
Most marriages could be saved and made joyful if
husbands and wives would live by this rule.
Every Christian home should be a refuge from
the world – a place of peace and joy.
