DAY 207

My word!

Words, they can bring life or sow death. The wise guard their mouths and what comes out. For even our words live forever, and all of them, we will have to account for before the Lord. Scary thought.

Best to consider that everything we say will go out into the universe. I read a poem in third grade that has stuck with me, (and that is a lot of sticking : )
It said something like -- Words are so proud, for once they go out, they can never be called back.

If we concentrate on the WORD, before we say our words, we might just catch some of those proud words before they escape.

Matthew 12:37
For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

James 3:10 10Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

Fill your mind and heart with the pure Word of the Lord, memorize His Word, and guard your tongue. Speak words of blessing and truth.
