Gentle words are a tree of life; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit. Pr15:4. Your words have the power of life or death. You can build up or tear down. Your words will even impact your childrens impressionable hearts and spirit so much more. So determine that your words will sow life in every situation. Let words that encourage, lift up and strengthen others become a part of your daily lifestyle. Let the purity of truth always be on your lips. Gentle words can strengthen, encourage and resolve difficult situations where frayed tempers or anger will only make things worse through the heat of emotion, rather than reasoned and wise words. Gentle words bring healing and restoration into a situation, so always give yourself a moment to think before responding that could turn a situation around. Praise God today that He’ll always give us the wisdom we need if we ask Him, to direct both our words and actIons.
