Slow To Speak

For the last few weeks, I have read some blogs, which other people have left mean comments or sent mean emails. People the blogs are our blogs, NOT YOURS. We can say, type, express what ever we want to on OUR blogs. If you do not like what you read, QUIT READING THEM!! You say that you leaving some Godly advise, but in the end you have done more damage than you thought you were doing in the first place.

As I read the blogs, some passage from James came to mind. I am going to share them with you: James 1:19-22 " So then my beloved brethren, let every man be SWIFT TO HEAR, SLOW TO SPEAK, SLOW TO WRATH; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God. Therefore lay aside all FILTHINESS and OVERFLOW OF WICKEDNESS, and receive with the meekness the implanted word' which is able to save your soul. But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves."

People, remember that these people are really and they do have feelings too. Think about if it was you, would you want them to do it to you? I would so not, but who knows. People use this as therapy and to vent, be sensitive to them.

Sorry, I just had to get this off of my chest. Hope that everyone is having a great day.

I think this is such a great and much needed post. I started blogging because I saw it as such an amaizng supportive and positive thing. Needless to say - that hasn't always been the case "around here".

Thanks for reminding everyone!!

I hope you gave a great day too!!

Great reminder! I haven't personally had any mean comments on my blog so far, but I imagine my time will come, it seems inevitable. I don't understand the need to leave a mean comment anyway...

You say it, Sista! I second that!!! Get off the blog if you don't like it. Why some people are so ugly, I don't understand. Nobody wants a rude comment. Hope you have a positively wonderful day!

I couldn't agree more. Seriously what's with all the HATE BLOGMAIL?

It blows my mind that people:
a) take the time to write the hate mail
b) continue to read something they disagree with
c) care so much!??

To me, your blog is exactly that ... YOUR BLOG, YOUR WORDS, YOUR THOUGHTS, YOUR OPINIONS.

I believe in respecting everyone as individuals. I can respect someone with a different opinion than my own and treat them just as nice as those that I agree with.

Welcome to life... play nice, or go away! :)

So so true!! If you don't have anything nice to say don't say it at all. Love your blog :)

Well said and I completely agree! I think it's really sad that people don't have anything better to do but spread negativity and leave nasty comments.

I love the blogging community as a whole and it is a shame that there are some bad apples out there.
