The shortened days of winter often come with strong tempers and short energies. This time of year usually brings out the blues in all of us.

When tempers flare, and sharp words are spoken, the consequences of our actions will often come back to haunt us.

But what makes us so short-tempered? A lack of serotonin  in our bodies? Missing sunshine? Pre expectation to bleak days ahead? Post reaction to an unsatisfied Christmas experience?

Who knows.

But when those forces hit us face-on, it’s best to be prepared for combat. Simply said, use Bible scripture as a guide.

“I will guard my ways, lest I sin with my tongue; I will restrain my mouth with a muzzle, While the wicked are before me.” (Psalm 39:1)
