Forget, Forgive, Forgiveness, God Thoughts, God's Goal, Jesus, Proverbs 11, Wisdom, Wise Sayings
Man, this is tough. Now Solomon was an amazingly wise man. So this is good advice.
Here are three steps. It is interesting in that Solomon links not reacting with forgiving and forgetting.
- Don’t react and say it. Just “hold my tongue”.
- BU. Whether what they say is true or not, I can forgive what they say.
- Forget. It is much easier to not react if it is the “first time” someone says something we don’t like. Forgetting makes that happen.
“Smart people know how to hold their tongue; their grandeur is to forgive and forget.” ~King Solomon

May I hold my tongue. Really Lord.
Help me. Make me smart. Amen.
