The Power of Words

"For out of the abundance of our hearts our mouths speak."

"If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless."

Harsh as it sounds, sadly it is so true. Sometimes we are so concerned about avoiding huge unrighteous acts, but little things like this we can just so easily compromise.

An encouraging word can build up someone beyond what he already can be, but an discouraging word can tear down the greatest talent into nothing.

Have you been speaking encouraging words to people around you - your spouse, children, colleagues, subordinates? Will we take up the challenge to drop one-by-one those unpleasant words which we have been speaking to others and replace them with more encouraging words?

Let us check our hearts before we speak, for out of the abundance of our hearts our mouths speak.
