I decided this is one of my titles…
I am a wife, a mom, a daughter, a daughter-in law, a sister, a sister-in-law and so on and so forth but **now** I’m also a WORD WARRIOR.
I love to use my words but… if you have ever come across this proverb:
“When there are many words, transgression and offense are unavoidable, But he who controls his lips and keeps thoughtful silence is wise.” –Proverbs 10:19, AMP Version
Too many words equals potentional trouble?!
I don’t want to sin, though!! I pray that I carefully think, say and communicate in a way that is encouraging and loving. A sense of redemption in what we do.
I have to share that I have exchanged a couple of emails with my county leaders in these last couple of months due to much happening in our county. I have found that when I get angry, I use a lot of words. *How about you? Do you notice this pattern in you? Do you notice this pattern in others?
I pray my words are encouraging and challenging in love and understanding not hate and rage. Guys, we have to do better with our time and energy and use it good and redemption.
I challenge us this week: let’s use our words to encourage and uplift!
The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences. “
Proverbs 18:21 NLT version
