Daily Devotional- Make Your Words Count
“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.” – Psalms 19:14
“The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.” – Proverbs 18:21
You cannot own your day until you own your words. We all know the power of words. Words can inspire you and encourage you. Words can create a desire in you to be the biggest and brightest. And words can also tear you down, discourage you, demoralize, and dishearten you. Words are powerful. Words are important. Your biggest challenge in life will be controlling your words. There is power in your words. Be careful what you say. Speak with the goal of building up, seeing the good in every circumstance, and always making people better. There is great wisdom in pausing before you speak to measure your words against these standards:
Is it helpful?
Is it necessary?
Is it kind?
Do you want to own your day? Own your words.
