God spoke and the world came into being. Words are powerful! Powerful enough to create life.
What about our words? Are we creating joy, hope, peace, and life for those around us? Are good things coming to others because of what we say?
The tongue, which helps form words, is like a rudder and sets the direction for our relationships and lives. Yet the tongue does not have a mind of its own. It is led by the heart. Let’s allow the Holy Spirit access to our hearts, that He might gently tame our toungues to be used by God to bring good things to others.
You might want to pray: Holy Spirit, as I begin this week’s study, I trust that You want good things for me. Tame my tongue, that I might bring good to others. Amen.
