Have you ever experienced mean words hurled your way? Revile means exactly “To assail with abusive language;” The tongue is powerful little thing. The Bible states, “Life and death are in the power of the tongue.”(Proverbs 18:21) Some people may choose to speak negative and even evil messages. They can say them to or about you. You can choose to believe what God has said to you. Take the insults like Jesus and do not retaliate. Turn it into a testimony. Focus on what God says in the Scriptures.
God has spoken life in abundance. He speaks death to sin and destruction. Jesus is the Word of God! Thoughts are to be on Jesus. Child of God, What does He say?
