Did you know that it is thought women on a daily average use more words/talk more than men? Yet, in recent years studies argue that men and women roughly use the same amount of words per day. Any-who....regardless of what the “studies” show.... it’s not about how many words we use, rather it’s the kind of words we use!
“The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.”
Proverbs 18:21 NLT
“A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.”
Luke 6:45 NIV
Today I encourage you, pause, search your heart (more importantly ask God to search your heart) ask the hard question of “what is the condition of my heart?” “Is it filled with good things?” “Is it a wellspring of life giving words to others?” Or, is it harboring hurt and hate? Trust me this is a daily process and the first step is awareness. Shining light over the dark areas and trust me we ALL have the dark areas and we all need Gods help to work through them!
So this week, as you speak...think to yourself, “Am I speaking life or death” it is a choice...
Lots of Love,
