From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. (James 3:10)
What I say has a huge impact on people. Especially if I aspire to be an educator, the cost of each of my words is very important. I can choose to praise God with what I say. I must not be careless with talking to others. If something does not edify or glorify God, I should not say it. God had been bringing attention to how I use my words lately. He blessed me with some conversations with my brother and cousin. He has reminded me of the cost and result of everything I say. I received a book about words that heal for Christmas and I read the first chapter about words for the church. Father, may my words be seasoned with the witness of your love and grace for me. Please remind me to weigh each word carefully before I speak so that you would be glorified.
