“How To Not Be a Troll”

Key Scriptures

  • Indeed, we all make many mistakes. For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way. 3 We can make a large horse go wherever we want by means of a small bit in its mouth. 4 And a small rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot chooses to go, even though the winds are strong. 5  In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches.​” James 3:2-5
  • Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. 24 Avoid all perverse talk; stay away from corrupt speech.” Proverbs 4:23-24
  • “…For whatever is in your heart determines what you say.”Matthew 12:34b 
  • When the Lord saw her, his heart overflowed with compassion. “Don’t cry!” he said.​” Luke 7:13
  • And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him…​” Luke 9:47 
  • Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. 20 Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires.​” James 1:19-20   

Reflect on What You’ve Heard

  1. Are some of your blades bent? 
  2. Are you missing a blade? 
  3. What do you need to do to fix it?

Pray it Out

Jesus, thank you for making a way so that I can know you! Please fix my heart, give me balance, and guide my words so that they may be pleasing and honest to you, amen.
