How often do you speak your feelings? Or rather, do you control your tongue? When you think positive about someone, are you allowing those words to escape your lips and bless others? Or when you think something negative, are those the first words to fly? Complaints? Criticisms?
Our words hold so much power. They have the power to bless someone or break them down. It takes discipline to keep unkind things to ourselves. It also takes discipline to make the choice to share good things we see in this world. It takes effort both ways. And both ways affect those around us.
Commit to being a blessing today. Commit yourself to be one who builds others up instead of tearing people down. Someone who is known to be a light and a blessing. Let Jesus be so clearly seen in the way you speak and act with others!
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. Ephesians 4:29
