One of life's greatest challenges is holding our tongues, even when we want to say something that at the time may be brilliant but isn't so much later.
It's even harder when Christians are held to a high standard and slip up around non-Christians, which can either hurt your testimony, or it can be used against you by people who don't understand that even the godly are human and make mistakes. Life is such a delicate balance between showing God's love and cracking under stress. Thankfully, we have him to back us up when we trip.
Speaking of which, I'm sure there's PLENTY that Pine wants to say right now and only the blessing of self-restraint is holding him back. And seriously, Bazil makes it so difficult for me to dislike him. For all his mischief, he's just adorable sometimes. xDTranslation: New Living, www.biblegateway.com/
