Speak Up
(Proverbs 17:27) The one who has knowledge uses words with restraint, and whoever has understanding is even-tempered.

No one wants or deserves to be mistreated. But it happens all the time. When it does, there’s no telling how our flesh will react in the moment. This is part of the human condition. However, the Word of God makes us able to respond to some of the most difficult encounters with peace and humility. Mistreatment stems from a place of pain. When we respond to pain with the Word of God, we are sustained from its harshness, and we intercept the adversary’s plan to spread more pain to others. God’s Word equips and positions us to be able to help one another stop this form of abuse in its tracks. Are you or someone you know being mistreated? Don’t be afraid to speak up about it. There’s pain that needs to be resolved, but not at the expense of your wholeness of mind, body, and soul. You matter…speak up.
