Sometimes we speak without thinking. We may have even been told to "watch our mouths" or "think before we speak." While we could have strong opinions, we need to be sure we are responding in a way that shows love and compassion. We need to look to God for guidance!
When we look to God and His Word, we can find examples of speaking His Truth with love and compassion. In looking deeper, we may realize that in order to speak with love and compassion, our hearts need to be filled with God's Spirit. If we allow ourselves to be filled with wickedness, then our lives will be marked with violence and we will speak and act on evil. However, if we commit to God's way, we can act with love as it flows out of our hearts. If we watch what fills our hearts, then we know that blessings and righteousness will flow from our mouths!
Watch what you say be filling your heart with God's love, compassion, and truth!
Thank You for loving me and filling my heart with Your love and compassion. Help me to speak in ways that show Your righteousness and brings blessings. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
