Sometimes it's how you say it

That's a lesson I still find myself learning.

I know that I can be sarcastic at times. I also know that some folks hate sarcasm and often times for good reason. As someone who has a gift for gab it is not that unusual for me to sin with my tongue (or keyboard). Anyway, I just wanted you all to know that I am going to be working on my tone. It's not because I have been flooded with criticisms. Rather, I had a good talk with someone about this issue and I felt convicted that sometimes I can communicate a truth in a way that is not very helpful for some (particularly for those who don't really know me).

That is not to say that there is not a biblical category for satire, polemic, and even open mockery of error. However, I don't want to be perceived as a jerk because I'm pretty sure I'm not one. I will not stop speaking up on issues that matter but I will be more mindful of how I say certain things.
