There is gold and abundance of costly stones, but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel. - Proverbs 20:15
This is one of my favorite Bible verses right now!! I think it is a really good reminder. It makes us stop and think about the words that we say. God says that the words of knowledge are a precious jewel! That shows how strong words are. And how great of an impact it could make on a person. Has somebody ever said something to you, no matter how small it was, that just stuck in your head?! Whether it was good or bad. We have a choice to be the kind of person that either says kind, pure words to others, or to say things that that person will always remember of you. Not so good things!
I want to live in such a way that people always remember encouraging words that I said. I think we have all been in a fight or two with maybe our brothers or sisters! But it's in those situations where we can either make the choice to say something to them that will hurt them or will build them up. You never know....the next few words you say to some one might change them forever. But you have a choice as to in what way.......
I've had friends come up to me before and be like "Oh! Remember that time you said...." and I stop and think, "Woah! You remember that far back?!" It's crazy how powerful our words are! So, speak life!
Today is a new day!! Start it fresh and new, and remember to think twice about what you say today :) ;) :)
I hope you enjoy this song!
Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.- Proverbs 16:24
