A MAN HAS JOY BY THE ANSWER OF HIS MOUTH, AND A WORD SPOKEN IN DUE SEASON, HOW GOOD IT IS! – PROVERBS 15:23
Friends, words are very powerful for they can either build up, or tear down others. Also foolish words can bring about our own destruction, for it is written; IN THE MOUTH OF A FOOL IS A ROD OF PRIDE, BUT THE LIPS OF THE WISE WILL PRESERVE THEM. PROVERBS 14:3
We are also warned about gossiping for it is written; IN ALL LABOR THERE IS PROFIT, BUT IDLE CHATTER LEADS ONLY TO POVERTY. ( PROVERBS 14:23 ) For after all; A WHOLESOME TONGUE IS A TREE OF LIFE, BUT PERVERSENESS IN IT BREAKS THE SPIRIT. PROVERBS 15:4
Further, God has instructed us to encourage one another, for it is written; LET US CONSIDER ONE ANOTHER IN ORDER TO STIR UP LOVE, AND GOOD WORKS, NOT FORSAKING THE ASSEMBLING OF OURSELVES TOGETHER, AS IS THE MANNER OF SOME, BUT EXHORTING ONE ANOTHER, AND SO MUCH THE MORE. HEBREWS 10:24-25
So my dear friends, let us go out and speak words of encouragement to one another. Speak life and be the hope to the people around you today, it might just be the encouragement words needed by them to change their outlook on life or their situations! Let us be the salt and light bearers to the world!
Heavenly Father, we understand that our words have some much power. Give us wisdom today to speak life and not death to the world around us. Thank you for Your teaching and guidance in the Word on how we should ACT and talk each and every day. Amen
