The other day, as I sat there at the Rev Coffee Shop, in Smyrna, Georgia, drinking a fresh cup of coffee, thinking, writing, looking out the windows, watching cars drive by and also observing people here in the coffee shop, I begin to wonder what things are on their hearts, their minds today? What battles are they fighting, what stories do they have to tell?
We all have things we can share, thoughts, hopes and dreams. We can build up or we can tear down with the words we share, that we speak, that we type!
We never know what kind of an impact our words will have on others, wether it will be a word that brings, life or death.
As we read James Chapter 3, we see the power that is in that little weapon, the tongue, that it can get us into a lot of trouble, because the word’s we speak, the words we type and the words we send have the power to bring life or death to the heart, to the spirit of someone!
Once that word is spoken or sent out, it is impossible to retrieve. It is like an e-mail we send or a word we speak in the heat of anger, it is gone!
Let us watch over this unruly member, the tongue, to set up a guard in our heart!,
Watch the words that we speak, that we write, that we send!
Take time to sit back and reflect for a little while before we speak or hit the send key.
