Every word you speak matters. Something you say may seem insignificant to you, but to someone else those words can be life changing. When you use your words to lift someone’s spirit and speak words of vision and life over them, you are depositing seeds that will last throughout eternity.
It’s especially important to speak vision into our children. As a parent, grandparent, teacher or friend, the children in your life need to hear on a regular basis that they can do something great with their lives. As parents, our words carry incredible weight. That’s why you should never put a child down. Don’t ever say, “You’re stupid, your to slow etc…. Why can’t you make good grades like your brother? Why can’t you hit that ball like your brother?” Those words are seeds. They can take root and impact that child’s life for many years in future.
Too many people have been crippled by low expectations. But today, all of that can change. Today, you can start to speak vision over yourself and over the people in your life. Today, you can call out the seeds of greatness in others and stir up the gift of God inside.
Friends, start today by speaking life into your kids and family! Be aware of the words you speak over them and also your own life!
