James 1:26

"If you claim to be religious but don't control your tongue,

you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless."

Words are SO POWERFUL! If you didn't know that at this point, then HERE YOU GO.

Words can hurt or heal, and you have A CHOICE, as to what comes out of your mouth everyday.
You have a choice right before you speak, to HURT someone with your words, or to BUILD THEM UP.
It's really important to think about the impact of what you're going to say, because words can be swords.

I know, I know, "I've heard that SO MANY TIMES.. Think before you speak." Blah blah blah, right?
It's crucial though, if you really are a follower of Christ, and you're living for Him.
He makes clear in this verse that your religion means NOTHING if you don't control your tongue.


So seriously, start thinking before you speak. That's my challenge today and tomorrow and this week and this year. It's my New Years Resolution, and I encourage all of you to take me up on the challenge. Join me.

Let's work together to spread more kindness in this world, because Lord knows we need it. There is so much hate and bitterness and anger in the world, because people don't stop to think about what LIFE they could bring if they spoke healing words, instead of damaging.  

Think about it.
