Hush Yo' Mouth!

This isn't the first blog I've had.

My other blog was basically a venting place. A place for me to air my frustrations and feelings, mostly negative.

But I've learned something.

Venting is not a virtue and it isn't mandatory. Most of the time it involves complaining, slander, backbiting, being a busybody or judgmental. All of which are condemned in scripture.

It is the antonym of discretion. It is definitely NOT gracious and sometimes it is very hurtful. All of those things are the opposite of the depiction of a virtuous woman.

Blogs are not the place to air our grievances. If there is a problem with a specific person or group of people, passive aggressively attacking them will not solve it. It will make the chasm wider. There is no good reason to openly or ambiguously attack someone, in person or online.

I have made a commitment to never do this again.

I guess my mother was right. If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.

Ephesians 4:29

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
