Pope Francis says that good Christians shouldn’t be–and this is a quote from our new pope–“Mr. and Mrs. Whiner.” Amen to that!”
Pope’s got some sass; I like it!

Ecclesiastes 5:2 says,
Never be rash with your mouth, nor let your heart be quick to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven, and you upon earth; therefore let your words be few.
Be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to become angry.
And watch what you tweet.*
* Also applicable to other types of social media.
Rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
Let no evil talk come out of your mouths, but only what is useful for building up, as there is need, so that your words may give grace to those who hear.
Choose to be wise with your words and to speak healing today.
