talkWords can hurt so deeply.  There are times when I have been too sensitive to what other people say.  I want to heed Solomon’s advice in Ecclesiastes.

21 Do not pay attention to every word people say,
or you may hear your servant cursing you-

22 for you know in your heart
that many times you yourself have cursed others.  Ecclesiastes 7

He’s right.  I have said bad things about others and meant no harm.  I may just spout off thinking something is witty or fits with the moment.  Sometimes I am hurt or frustrated.  I would prefer not to hear what others say of me when they are under pressure.

I resolve to not pay attention to everything people say.
