James 3:10New Living Translation (NLT)
10 And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth. Surely, my brothers and sisters, this is not right!
Whew! this scripture puts our conversations into check!
How often do we Praise God one minute and Talk Down about someone the next.
Be honest- are you blessing AND cursing
Often we say little remarks or make comments without giving our words the attention they deserve. We feel its our “right” to give our opinion on a matter that doesn’t concern us at all.
What if we went a whole 24hrs only speaking blessings, only saying positive things, only praising God instead of criticizing and complaining.
Why is it so easy to rip someone to shreds instead of building them up?
It takes practice and it takes being watchful of your words.
Your words are boomerangs, what you’ve said of others will be said of you.
Let’s do better
I challenge you today can you go 24hrs without speaking negative?
The clock starts now…
