Plea for Grace

Plea for Grace May 21, 2022

Psalm 141:3-4, 8-9 ESV - 
3 Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips! 
4 Do not let my heart incline to any evil, to busy myself with wicked deeds in company with men who work iniquity, and let me not eat of their delicacies! ... 
8 But my eyes are toward you, O GOD, my Lord; in you I seek refuge; leave me not defenseless! 
9 Keep me from the trap that they have laid for me and from the snares of evildoers!

It’s so easy to speak without thinking, to spout off opinions and judgments before taking time to consider if it is right to do so. Temptation is near, and discipline is hard!

Lord, help me keep my eyes on You. You are the true judge and avenger. You are wise and sovereign. Help me to not sin with my tongue or my attitude. Give me the wisdom and understanding to know what to say, what not to say, to whom to say it, . . .and when. . .

Day 6: When an Egyptian Christian is martyred, they
leave behind a family and community that heals slowly.
Ask God to help these believers recover

I worked with a woman who always seemed to know the right things to say at the right time. I don’t know if she was a believer or not. I noticed that before she replied to anything, she would take just a second, close her lips, take a breath and then reply. That takes a lot of discipline, and I have tried for years to imitate her. . . Sometimes I do it and other times I fail. A work in progress is what we all are.

Good advice—quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger…(James 1)

I want to know what you think!
