My husband says I have too much stuff. So, he came up with this theme. And I kept it (reluctantly).
I had a conversation with a friend today about WORDS.
Somehow, it becomes so easy to trash our friends and loved ones with our words. We speak hurtful things, talk about others behind their backs – all while justifying our actions, saying we’re just venting or getting things off our chest.
We complain and then infect others with our negativity – becoming a garbage magnet.
Let’s all agree to trash words that hurt and be a giver of words that encourage and heal.
God, help me quickly realize when my words are not uplifting others. Help me recognize instantly when my words are damaging and coming at the cost of someone else.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight (Psalm 19:14).
Proverb of the Day:
Proverbs 18:4 – Many words rush along like rivers in flood, but deep wisdom flows up from artesian springs.
