Stopping Fires: Biblical

Fires: a hot topic, huh? (For some context for this post & cartoon please read Stopping Fires (1).)

Did You know?…there is an old Bible metaphor describing the tongue as a fire.  Poor communication choices can certainly start some fires aka fights these days. Some of us (more sensitive types) get triggered and hurt by the use of certain words. I try, my best, to be respectful of others and their feelings. (I can be sensitive myself especially when I am depressed.) But it’s hard, at times, to know what can set someone off. (It’s hard for my family to know that about me when I am not well.)
