Give More Grace
by Rick Boxx

The Wall Street Journal article titled, "Keeping Your Foot Away from Your Mouth" highlighted many political and entertainment celebrities blasted by the media for stupid or insensitive statements. With social media and 24 hour news, every word can be used against you.
When you're in the public eye, especially in politics, opponents can bash you with your own words. Some political commentators are maliciously overcritical. We need to be thoughtful and slow to speak, because we are responsible for our communications, but as a culture we also need to give more grace. Sometimes we all make mistakes.
Let's remember James 3:2 which says, "We all stumble in many ways. If anyone is never at fault in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to keep his whole body in check."
