Growing up my mom would tell me to watch my mouth. My response was my tongue didn’t have a mirror. To be honest that didn’t go over well. What she was implying to me was to be careful what I said. She also tought me to chew my words before I spit them out. Both lessons have been valuable to me over the years.
Words are powerful and can define us in a positive or negative way. Let me give you an example, I was talking to a lady the other day who said our president was an idiot. My comeback was so you don’t think that Donald Trump’s mental development is higher than a two year old child? The lady looked at me strangely because her definition of an idiot was her opinion and not what the Webster Dictionary revealed.
It is important to use words that work and make sure you know what they mean. Proverbs 18:21 says, Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. I encourage you to speak positive words over your marriage, health, finances, and children. Stay away from words that have a negative tone.
If I asked your friends to define you in one word what would it be?
