"Anxiety in a man's heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad." Proverbs 12:25
When we speak... we can either lift others up or bring them down... it's our choice. Once our words are out of our mouths... they can't be taken back, even if we really didn't mean it. We should use our conversations as an opportunity to give gifts of words to our friends and family. It takes no time, trouble or thought to be critical. So how about you? Are your words presents, wrapped up with ribbon and a pretty bow on top?
I know I need to work on that area of my life. It is easy to be critical and insensitive of the ones we love the most. We should always try to bring out the best in someone. Just something to think about.
Have a great weekend!
