Recently I have caught myself a few to many times speaking without thinking. I have began to realise how much power the words we say have. Proverbs 12:18 says, “Reckless words pierce like a sword but the tongue of the wise bring healing”. When we are reckless with our words, when we don’t think before we speak, the things we say can be so destructive to not only others but ourselves.
Genesis 1 tells us about how God created the universe. What struck me with all of this was God said something and it was. He created everything by speaking, with his words everything came into existence. Genesis 1:27 says, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” We are made in Gods image, if God can speak things into creation why can’t we. Are you speaking destruction, like a piercing sword, or are you speaking life, like the healing words of the wise? Are you planting seeds of goodness into people or are you creating seeds of destruction?
I want to challenge you to THINK before you speak. Ask your self is it True, Helpful, Inspiring, Necessary and Kind before you say anything. Make sure you’re speaking Life.
