Words…

"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen."  Ephesians 4:29

"Let my words be life.  Let my words be truth.  I don't want to say a word unless it points the world back to You."  Those are the words to one of my favorite songs, "Words" by Hawk Nelson.  Have you ever thought about the words you use each day.  Multiple studies show that we use around 15,000 words per day.  How many of those words are encouraging?  How many of those words are destructive?  It reminds me of Ephesians 4:29, where Paul states, "Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen."  Today you may run into a friend, a family member, or maybe even a stranger who needs to be encouraged.  Today you may need to be encouraged by a friend, a family member, or a maybe even a stranger.  Will the words you use today build others up or tear them down?  Will the words you speak point the world back to Him?

I would love to hear your comments...
