Careful words make for a careful life; careless talk may ruin everything.
This world can be a difficult place, a place were many of out friends and family members are troubled by the inevitable challenges of everyday life. And since we can never be certain who needs our help, we should be careful to speak helpful words to everybody who crosses our paths.
In the book of Ephesians, Paul writes, ” Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful or building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” (4:29) Paul reminds us that when we choose our words carefully, we can have a powerful impact on those around us.
Today, lets share kind words, smiles, encouragement, and hugs with family, with friends, and with the world.
When you talk, choose the very same words that you would use if Jesus were looking over your shoulder. Because He is.
