We all have a friend or two that can get under our skin, maybe even someone that we work with, or go to church with. Whatever the case may be we need to put our best foot forward and keep our side of the street clean. Remember that when people are being unruly or grouchy, it’s usually because something is going on in there life that they are having trouble with. It can be hard at times to not snap a witty comment back at them when they are being rude, but remember that Jesus was under verbal fire all throughout the bible from persons who just wanted to hate. People do this because they don’t want to work on things in their life. Ask to pray with that person or just smother them with kindness. Have you heard that saying, “You can catch more flies with honey then with vinegar?” Proverbs 16:24 Kind words are like honey -sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
