Don’t you hate it when people never properly finish a sentence? Do you hear the word ‘stupid’ regularly in your life? No, no, you are not stupid! The word your abuser surely meant to say was…
which means impressively excellent or great in extent or degree! Even if they didn’t say it properly, you can hear it that way, for we are created by God and he knows better than to make ‘stupid.’
How then should we react to those who do not know how to finish their sentences properly?
Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels.And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. (2 Timothy 2:23-24, NIV)
Prayer- Lord, in our relationships with one another, help us react to hurtful comments with the grace of Christ, who being in the very nature of God…(see Philippians 2:6-8) … Amen.
