Words can stir up trouble. Words can create drama. Words can even start fights and wars! Maybe you have experienced the hurt associated with words. Maybe your words have caused hurt to another. It can be easy to make comments about others and even to gossip, but we need to be sure that our tongue and lips are not being mean and deceitful.
When we combine the two sayings from before, we see the importance of watching our tongue and speaking with care, deliberation, and good intent. Our words should not tear each other down, but we should seek to support one another and find peace. Remember that we are to turn from evil and embrace all that is good, to seek peace in the people and world around us. We can see good days unfolding in front of us if we speak positively with goodness and love!
Draw close to God and choose to have good days by keeping your tongue from evil!
Thank You for giving me good days. Please help me to fill the days with love and goodness through speaking positive, supportive, and Godly words! In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
