“Your speech should always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you should answer each person.” (Colossians 4:6)
Our words have so much power. It happens to all of us. That moment after you have said something that you just wish you could rewind the clock and take it back. Those words usually slip out, fueled by emotion. So what to do when it happens? A little honesty and a little humility usually goes a long way.
Apologize. Explain. Ask for forgiveness. “I’m sorry I snapped. It’s no excuse but I’m (tired) (hungry)(stressed out). Please forgive me and let me make it up to you. You are such an important person to me, and my hasty words are no reflection on anything beside my weakness.”
