Hostess: Laurie Ann at A Magnolia’s Heart Beats
Topic: The Words We Speak
Do the words you speak reflect your reverence for Christ?
Would you consider your speech to be self-controlled and pure?
Do you find gossip and slander hard or easy to avoid?
To answer all of the questions, YES, as long as I keep my mouth shut and never say anything! But the minute we open our mouths it is a challenge. When God gave us a free will He also gave us a free tongue. And with freedom comes responsibilty. Our words can give life or death to those around us. With our words we have the abilty to bless or curse our own lives. I choose to bless. I choose life. I choose to use my words to build up my house, not tear it down.
