One Minute with God: Salted Insult

An insult can become as bitter as salt. Many of us may struggle and even live in the world of offense because of what someone has done or said to us days or even years ago. The famous saying; “stick and stones may break my bones but words will never break me” may be a good way to conceal an offense but it doesn’t necessarily heal the offense.


Like a drop of ink in clear water - negative words have the ability to incubate in the human soul for months if not years, and eventually affect its victim. It is important to know that walking in continual forgiveness is the only hope we have if we are going to keep our joy, and peace going forward. Sometimes these verbal outbreaks may be intentional, and other times the perpetrators never knew of the matter. But, one thing is for sure it is your and my responsibility to dilute the emotional strain it has caused by immediately practicing forgiveness.


Don’t let the hurtful words of men become your daily listening. But, permit yourself to wash yourself with God’s good Word - which is good news.


James 3:9-11


9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it, we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. 11 Can both freshwater and saltwater flow from the same spring?
