Words Of Life

| | Comments (0)

Today's reading: Proverbs 18:21

I've been traveling for work the past week, and one of the things I enjoy doing when I'm on the road is to watch people. So as I boarded on and off planes and shuttles, waited in lines for food, coffee and rental cars, I was able to observe hundreds of interactions between various people-friends, families, co-workers, business colleagues, strangers. I couldn't help but notice the power of our words. Proverbs 18:21 tells us:

"Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits."

There's nothing more enjoyable than receiving words of life. Words that compliment, word that support, words that express respect, kindness, care, and empathy, and words that convey love. Even a few positive and encouraging words have the power to change a person's perspective and can literally change the course of their day.

Who will you encourage with your words today--at home, school, work, on Facebook, as you're out running errands? Will you be intentional about offering encouraging words of life to those you encounter this weekend? Tami
