Do You Speak Right?

These days too much emphasis is being laid on the quality of our actions and deeds towards others. Many times we strive to live righteously, by doing…but how about our words? How righteous are they? To me it really doesn’t count much if you are kind to me and do other many great things for me, but still curse me.

Folks, words are powerful, yet many of us don’t realise this. Let your words compliment your actions. It was said of Jesus in John 7:46 “No man ever spoke like this man.” Think about this. Can others say the same about you, as a Christian?

In other to live your greatest life, always remember that,

“A careless word may kindle strife, A cruel word may wreck a life; A bitter word may smite and kill, A brutal word may accomplish nil; But, A gracious word may smooth the way, A joyous word may brighten a day; A timely word may lessen stress, A loving word may heal and bless.”

“Whatever comes out of your mouth unfailingly reveals what is on the inside.”…think about this. It doesn’t matter much if you are the kindest person out there, if your words ain’t so kind.

  1. A Sunday School lesson that I taught many times: Is it kind? Is it true? Is it necessary? I used these phrases also in my public school classrooms, too. It works!

  2. Yes. I have found there are times people seem to “push” or shove the idea that we have to answer right away. I have learned to say I need to pray or just walk away before I answer. Because out of the abundance of our heart the mouth speaks, we need to make sure our heart is right on a daily basis! Talking when we are messed up can lead to disaster! Trust me when I say I learned this one the hard way. 🙂
