Express Yourself

Have you ever been told to think before you speak?  I remember being told by my parents, “Don’t just say the first thing that comes to mind, think first.”  I’m learning more and more that a soft answer turns away wrath. The Bible is clear about practicing self-control. It’s ok to get angry. It’s not ok to sin.  I’m still living and learning how to express myself as a child of God. I realize sometimes I have to open my heart before I open my mouth.  Sometimes it’s better to open my heart and shut my mouth until the right time.  Now that’s what I call living on pitch.
