The lips of fools bring them strife, and their mouths invite a beating.Proverbs 18:6
Ouch! Did I say that?There have been so many times when I wish a recorded message
similar to a phone recording would come on and give me a do over on something I said
which I later regretted. This is unfortunately impossible. Once words are spoken or typed
on a keyboard it is too late.
It is so critical to really not let emotions rule our tongues.This is a skill that need to be
developed. Many times harsh, mean, misunderstood words can cause broken relationships.
Words can lift people up or tear them down. Which do your words do?
Why not start today and purpose to try to not let anything that will displease God come from
your lips. This includes gossip, lies(even white lies), hate, arguments, cursing, bragging,
nagging, words that break someone's spirit, meddling, and judgment to name but a few.
Go out and let your word bless someone.
PRAYER: Help me Lord to use my words to help others did not hurt them. Forgive me
when I have hurt you Lord by what came out of my mouth. In Jesus' name. Amen.
