“Words Of Wisdom”
We must watch Our WORDS diligently. Words have such great power to BLESS or to WOUND. When We Speak carelessly or negatively, We damage others as well as Ourselves. Our ability to verbalize is an awesome privilege, granted only to those the Lord God created in His image. We need help in wielding this Mighty Power responsibly.
Though the world applauds fast verbal come-backs and quick-witted responses, the Lord’s instructions about communication are quite different: BE QUICK TO LISTEN, SLOW TO SPEAK, AND SLOW TO BECOME ANGRY. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you whenever you speak. Pray — “Help me Holy Spirit”—before answering the phone, for example. Simply apply this discipline when communicating with people around you. If they are talking, pray before responding. These are split-second prayers, but they put you in touch with The Lord’s Presence. In this way, your speaking coms under the control of the Spirit of God. As positive speech patterns replace your negative ones, the increase in your personal Joy will amaze you.
Glory to God! Hallelujah!
