Ephesians 4:29 (NIV)
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
In our lesson today what did we learn to do to have authentic relationships? speak the truth in love
Who in the Bible did Jesus speak the truth to in love? The Samaritan woman
Who did Jesus speak the truth to harshly? The Pharisees
What does the Bible teach us to do when we get angry? Not to sin instead we can get calm and then respond to those that have upset us.
Dear God, help me today to stay calm even when something makes me angry. I pray Lord that when I am with my friends I will be gentle and speak with them the truth. In Jesus name Amen.
Breathing exercise for when we get upset. Take a deep breath and count to 10 backwards.
