Thought for the day 18 November

18 November

Trying not to get ensnared in party politics, nevertheless one can’t help noticing the reaction in the media to a certain individual talking about something being a ‘disaster’, and the fallout for friends and allies. It’s so easy to say something, it’s so hard to retract it. We will all have encountered that for ourselves – maybe we were the ones who came out with the ill-judged remark.

Lord, help us to be careful with what we say
