The power of life and death really is in our tongue. I think I realize that more than ever tonight God. Our words can encourage someone and leave them flying high or they can crush them. Just through words. Careless words, my careless words, have caused more damage than I will probably ever know.
Help me God to be more aware of my words and their effect. Help me to be more thoughtful about the things that I say. God help me to use my words to heal and not harm. Protect and not attack. God, let your words be my words.
What God Said Tonight:
Words are like bricks, they can build great things but they can destroy just as easy. It all depends on how they are wielded. If you carefully place them in the right place at the right time with other words, you can build a great pyramid or a mansion. If you throw them, one by one or even worse, as a big load, you can kill and destroy.
Words were intended to be used to build, to encourage, to create. It is only when they are used for a purpose that they were not made for that we run into trouble. Be careful with your bricks.
