God love ’em. Bless their heart. I guess it was God’s will. Blessed and highly favored of God. We may not understand everything in THIS life. And various other annoying and “churchy” things Christians sometimes say.
Have you ever went through some horrible situation, maybe the loss of a loved one, or a break-up, or some financial crisis? Most of the time, when bending the ear of a friend, any of the above sayings, is the last thing you want to hear. Or maybe that’s just me? The point is, sometimes we just need to listen. We don’t always have to give a response. Especially when you’re just digging one out of your standard, generic, Christian ones .
A gentle and quiet spirit, in God’s sight is very precious.1peter 3:4b If one gives an answer before he hears, it is his folly and shame. Prov. 18:13
A gentle, quiet spirit is not something that’s easy for me . But it’s something I want to work on!
