Good 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

 

I recently read an article that said women, on average, use up to 20,000 words each day.  That same article said that men, on average, use up to 7,000 words each day.  I'm not going to debate about who talks more, women or men.  I just know that's a lot of words being thrown around.  I'm just curious what your day and what my day would look like if you and I and everyone around us used "good" words toward each other???  Today, you and I can use words that are "helpful for building others up according to their needs."  Today, you and I can use words that are a "benefit to those who listen."  There is so much in the world that is going in the wrong direction that we can't control, but we can control our mouths.  Ask God to give you a spirit of peace and love towards everyone you come in contact with today.  He will do it!  Then, use your mouth to encourage others...build them up...be a benefit to them.  Make a choice today to use "good" words all day long:)
