Thursday Devotion

Happy Thursday everyone! Oh this is a big one! I think everyone is guilty of this one all the time. From the language we use to gossiping about others, our tongues always seem to get us in trouble. Who can relate this morning?

I had a conversation once with someone who found no problem with always dropping the F-bomb. (I’m as quilt as anyone for using it when I get stressed) Their argument was that it is just another word and my counter to them was “you just don’t understand the power that words have”.

Whether good or bad, our words have an everlasting effect on others and ourselves. Today, let our words bring life to others, Amen? Could our world not use a little life?

Have a great Thursday my friends and please don’t forget to join my Facebook group by clicking here!

In Christ,

  1. As ambassadors for God’s kingdom it’s important to recognize that curse words may seem arbitrary, but to the world it’s a test. Is this person different? Do they speak differently, live differently?
    James 3:10 (ESV)
    From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.

      1. There always seems to be this stubborn quality accompanied with people advocating that an F bomb is acceptable daily usage for Christians, when Christians should be the salt and light for the world. Great post!

  2. The Lord, through his word, spoke to me this morning on the use of my words and yours is the second post today that speaks to that topic. Although, I was taken back that the scripture I read dealt with blaspheming the Lord.I love the Lord and would never have thought this applied to me. But as I read the definition, it spoke of anything not giving a right reverence and majesty to our Lord. It convicted my heart of times I joked about or took lightly who our Lord is. Don’t get me wrong, I believe the Lord wants us to enjoy the life He’s given us and have fun but not at His expense. I had to repent and pray that my words would always reflect His goodness, love and majesty.

  3. Yes we have to watch our words. I always tell my Mom and sister about this whenever they slip up in their dialect. I be like Mommy, pleasant words, pleasant words! Lol I apply to myself as well before I go to say anything I always remember the scripture that says we need to be Holy in ALL manner of conversations and the one with pleasant words. πŸ™‚ blessings!
