Are we speaking words that kill or words that give life?
There are times when the wrong thing comes flying out of my mouth and I have no idea why I said that. Or times when I question "did I just say that out loud?" My choice is that my words would give life. My prayer is that the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart would be acceptable in His sight.
If I have to choose between spewing poisonous life killing words
the ripe fruit of sweet words wisely spoken...I choose the fruit.
Not all of our choices are so cut and dried when we are in the middle of a chat. Sometimes an ill worded joke or a gruff tone of voice can be conversation killers. Even a scripture quoted to bring comfort or give instruction can be misconstrued if the timing is off. So I need to choose wisely.
May God guard my tongue...and prompt me to speak affirming life-giving words in His time.
