Proverbs 18:21 (The Message) says, “Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit – you choose.”
We need a good filter! For our mind to function properly, it’s vital to filter our words before we speak. O, how I wish I would always think before I speak! We do not want to be one of those people who speak their minds whenever and wherever.
Our words can be “damaging” or “developmental”! Lifeless words damage others and yourself. Words that add value “develop” our purpose and destiny.
When water comes out of the faucet, it may taste fine, but when it is filtered it becomes pure. The more we filter our thoughts and our words before we speak, the purer they will become. Pure words produce positive life.
We want to filter and think before we speak, so that we add value! We do not want to cause hurt or pain unintentionally or hastily by speaking words without recognizing the power of their influence. Choose today to speak love! -Larry
