Our Words Matter

In this difficult season, what are you saying? Are your words hostile, condemning, unkind? Are they demanding service and freedom and self-delight?

Are we part of the problem or are we part of the solution?

God is listening. After all, He has better ears then the rest of us. Every word we speak is audible to God. Do we say those words like we mean them?

See what they spew from their mouths— the words from their lips are sharp as swords, and they think, “Who can hear us?”(Psalm 59:7, NIV)

If we are speaking in community, our listeners shouldn’t be embarrassed or threatened by our words.

May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. (Psalm 19:14, NIV)

Prayer- Father, give us a voice of conviction and peace that promotes love and consideration but never hate. Amen.
