James 3:8-10
8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 
9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father;
 and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. 
My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

This verse is so powerful if we but put it into practice and ponder on its meaning.
Unfortunately how true it is. And it shouldn't be so.
How quick derogatory words fly out of our mouths at the least provocation.
And how seldom do words of kindness, encouragement, goodness, love and hope
Come forth.

So today
Beef up your vocabulary.
Find 10 good words you can say about or too others.
Even to those who we don't like.

Here are some of mine:
  1. Good
  2. Wonderful
  3. Delight
  4. Kind
  5. Pleasant
  6. My Pleasure
  7. Honor
  8. Encourage
  9. I applaud your...
  10. I appreciate
