Grab your Bible this morning and turn to Psalms 141:3, and read this verse about five times. Then ask Him how can this apply to my life today.
Psalms 141:3 says this, “Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.” Wow, what mental picture does this verse paint for you this morning? How many of us have said things that we wish we could take back? One of my favorite toys I ever had as a child was a cork gun! It was so much fun to play with, but the best thing about it was the cork was attached to a string at the end of the gun. I never had to chase it down or ever stop playing to look for it behind a chair, or under the couch!
There have been times in my life where I wished I could have had a string on the end of my words! Have you ever popped off and said something before you thought everything through? Proverbs 21:23 says, “He who guards his mouth and his tongue keeps himself from calamity.” The words we speak can either tear down or they can build up.
I know what I am about to ask you to do isn’t easy, but here it goes. Is there someone in your life you need to go to and say I sorry? Think about it this morning. Make things right with them and with God. Choose to build up, encourage, and find positive words to speak into people’s lives!
Have a great Thursday! Find one person today and encourage them with kind words. God bless!
