What you say on a daily basis reflects your character and is an image of what's in your heart. We need to be more conscious of what we do and say.
Luke 6:45 (NIV) A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.
Brothers and sisters, What are we speaking? What is in our hearts? We all know what good and evil is. If you speak negatively, then negativity will be produced and the opposite is the same. If you speak positively, then positive results will be produced. This is not a mystery. We've just chosen to live for ourselves and ignore what God's word says about how we should conduct ourselves. Change is hard, but it must happen in order to honor and glorify The Most High God.
Proverbs 18:21 (NIV) The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruits.
Words are very powerful. How powerful are they? Here's an example in Genesis 1:3 (NIV) And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. All God did was speak, and it was! This means that when we, speak, we produce whatever it is that we are speaking. Are you speaking life or death into your life and the lives of others? The entire world was produced in six days because GOD SPOKE IT INTO EXISTENCE!!! Let's get this on the inside of us and written upon our hearts.
How is the heart filled with good and evil things. Obviously if we do bad things all the time and live a continuous life cycle of evil, then that's all that's going to be in our heart because we're living it right? The same goes for living a Godly life. When you love others, help them, pray for them, read and study the word of God, good will come about because you have these things in your heart. I can say that these things are taught. Children reflect their parents and the environment they grow up in. We can change the way we think, act, and speak. It's our choice. What will you do or what are you doing?
Let's pray: Father, You are a loving merciful God. You love us so dearly even in our mistakes. Father, help us to make the choice daily to become more Christ-like. I pray that when people see us and the holy lives we live, they will wonder and inquire of how they too can become like Jesus. Father forgive us for our mistakes and guide us into your truth, In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen
