"Wise words satisfy like a good meal;
the right words bring satisfaction.
The tongue can bring death or life;
those who love to talk will reap the consequences."
Our words can kill or nourish life. Today, pay attention to your words. Use them judiciously. Imagine they are coins. Don't toss them away. Invest them wisely and reap the rewards.
-Encouraging Words: Your Daily Devotion
This was such a powerful message for me. I don't know about y'all...but I have a problem running my mouth sometimes. I can't help but gossip and always tend to say exactly what I think whether it's appropriate or not. More times than not, I find myself looking back on a conversation I had and wishing I hadn't said half of the things I said. Sometimes we don't stop and think about the damage just a few words could do. Let's all concentrate and think very hard about what we are going to say before we say it from now on. Not only will we feel better about what we say, but I'm sure others will feel better about it too. :)
