James 3:1-12

Someone said that by examining the tongue of a patient, physicians find out the diseases of the body, and philosophers the diseases of the mind. Listening to an individual talk, one can discover the disease of the heart. Without Christ in the heart, there is cursing, gossiping, and spiteful comments.

Godly things should come out of the Christian’s mouth. Let’s pledge to use it for good. Speak words of encouragement. Building people up. Who? How about a young couple facing hard times?  A student away from home. A widow lost in loneliness without companionship. A pastor or missionary laboring in obscurity or in a difficult assignment. A divorcee struggling to gain self-confidence or acceptance. Encourage often and generously.

Give words of praise. Praise to our God. Celebrating Him. Give Him glory, honor, and worship. Whisper words of prayer. Communicate quietly and calmly with the eternal God of the universe who loves to talk with us.

Let your words be positive today!
