WATCH YOUR WORDS DILIGENTLY. – PROVERBS 12 : 18, JAMES 1 : 19, EPHESIANS 4 : 29

“WATCH YOUR WORDS DILIGENTLY. Words have such great power to bless or to wound. When you speak carelessly or negatively, you damage others as well as yourself. This ability to verbalize is an awesome privilege, granted only to those GOD created in HIS image. You need help in wielding this mighty power responsibly. Though the world applauds quick-witted retorts, The LORD’S instructions about communication are quite different: Be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry. Ask GOD’S Holy Spirit to help you whenever you speak. GOD has trained you to pray—“Help me, Holy Spirit”—before answering the phone, and you have seen the benefits of this discipline. Simply apply the same discipline to communicating with people around you. If they are silent, pray before speaking to them. If they are talking, pray before responding. These are split-second prayers, but they put you in touch with GOD’S Presence. In this way, your speaking comes under the control of GOD’S Holy Spirit. As positive speech patterns replace your negative ones, the increase in your Joy will amaze you.”

Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. PROVERBS 12 : 18

My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. JAMES 1 : 19

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. EPHESIANS 4 : 29

Prayer: Lord help me to be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. Remind me to ask the Holy Spirit for help to speak words or life and not death in all situations. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
