Watch Your Words

Words have the power to bless or wound. We need to watch not only what we say but how we say it. We must be careful when we speak because when you speak negatively we can damage not only ourselves but those around us. God gave us a set of instructions when it comes to communicating with those around us - Be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to anger. We are to ask God to help us whenever we speak. So before you answer that phone, talk with friends or family, or engage with the world around you, say this small prayer -"Help me, Holy Spirit". When we do this, we allow our tongues be guided by God and once we start speaking positively, we will our joy increased and it will amaze you.

"Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing." - Proverbs 12:18

"My dear brothers, take not of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry." - James 1:19

"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen." - Ephesians 4:29
