Hello readers! I have been away a while again, I know. I am sorry. I am going to start writing blog posts on Sundays and scheduling them to post throughout the week. This way, you will have some reading material awaiting you each day or so. Hopefully that is ok with you.
As some of you know, I own an iPhone. No I haven’t upgraded to the iPhone 4 yet, but I really want to. One of the most loved applications I have, and find really addicting, is Words With Friends. If you aren’t familiar with it, it is a Scrabble like game that you can play random people, or friends, all over the world. Through playing this game, I have learned some new words, and realized some words I thought were words, weren’t. Feel free to start a game with me if you have the application. My username is OSUTom.
So I have been thinking lately. Do the words that come out of my mouth reflect Christ in me? In a world where communication is key, do I use my words wisely? Words can be used to build someone up, or knock them down. Words can have several meanings, so am I using them correctly?
The Bible states the following about words and how we should use them. It also talks about how we aren’t supposed to speak.
James 3:9-11 (The Message)
With our tongues we bless God our Father; with the same tongues we curse the very men and women he made in his image.Curses and blessings out of the same mouth! My friends, this can’t go on. A spring doesn’t gush fresh water one day and brackish the next, does it?
Psalms 34:13 (The Message)
Guard your tongue from profanity, and no more lying through your teeth.
Proverbs 11:9 (The Message)
The loose tongue of the godless spreads destruction; the common sense of the godly preserves them.
There are plenty more of examples, but they are too long to list.
Questions I would like to leave you with today:
1) Are your words mirroring Christ?
2) Do you think about what you say before you say it?
Until next time readers, God Bless!
