We can probably all agree that it is nice when we hear people say good things about us. We may feel encouraged, valued, and even proud of ourselves when we have others that support us. Unfortunately, we probably also have felt the opposite of hearing good things about us. We can learn from these experiences and decide how to act!
We are reminded in the Bible to watch the words that we say. We can tear people down with gossip or "corrupt" talk. Before we speak, we need to think about our intent. If we are following God, we should be trying to build each other up. We should be sharing the love and grace that God has shown us. In those moments when we do make mistakes, we can apologize and allow God to forgive us, always trying to build each other up!
Use your "talk" to build each other up in God's grace and love!
Thank You for the grace and love that You have shown me in my life. Help me to show Your grace and love to others. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
