The Word of God says that we build and edify with our words, and we dismantle and destroy with them also. Since we can absolutely bless or curse with the power of the tongue, we are advised and encouraged to choose life, and live! An act of kindness for the beneficiary will be probably never forgotten-always remembered. Likewise, your spoken words hope-fully filled, may and can be a defining and a life changing moment to the hearer.
We are called to be salt and light to this earth. And as children of the light, we have a treasure of promises, a known destination, a 24/7 companion... a restored relationship with the King, and our spirit alive! So in the short, or long journey as a Beloved of God, we get to illuminate, instill a truth, a love, a hope that can: turn from a direction, change a way of thinking, introduce an unconsidered perspective, share the Gospel, and spark a sense of importance to someone who may think, or feel insignificant- not worthy of anyone’s concern.
Spoken words are packed with significance, emotions and recognition unto others. Jesus was seldom alone because the crowds couldn’t get enough of what He had to say!... life changing words to the hearers. I encourage ALL to breathe LIFE unto people, to speak life unto a situation, to truly mean well in your well doing, and your words be safe, well, whole and sound- unto a heart captured by hope!
Deuteronomy 18:17 And the Lord said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.
Luke 10:28 And he said unto him, Thou has answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.
