When we consider all of the things we say over the course of a day, week, or month, we speak a lot of words! Like the calories in our diets, these words may be empty or they may be filled with a positive purpose. When our words are hurtful or without love, then they are empty and can cause damage or destruction. If we choose to use empty words, we will be accountable for them to God. Instead of empty words, our words need to be filled with God's love. We need to think about our words and our actions to be sure that they are not empty, but instead build people up!
Choose your words so they are full of God's love and not empty words that destroy!
Thank You for filling my life with Your love. Help me to choose words and to act in ways that are filled with Your love so that others can be built up in Your glory. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
