‘“Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.” “Their feet are swift to shed blood; Destruction and misery are in their ways; And the way of peace they have not known.”’ Romans 3:14-17
It does not say, “If you say a curse word you will not have peace”, thank God, because at one time or
another we have all said a curse word or two. God does not want our mouth full of cursing, we all know people that it seems that is all they know is curse words. This verse should remind us to feel sorry for them because the very thing they are looking for is peace they will not have.
Bitterness always hurts the one who is bitter more than the one they are bitter at; don’t allow bitterness to rob your joy and peace. People that don’t know Jesus is their way to having peace will try to cover up their lack of peace through curse words they speak and the bitterness they feel.
Prayer: “Father, help us to watch the words we speak! Help us to speak words that bring peace not
destruction. Help us to pray for those who lack peace and use curse words and bitterness to cover up their lack of peace. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
