Saturday's Dose - June 15th 2013

Weigh Your Words 

Today's Scripture

"A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger." -Proverbs 15:1 NIV.

Thoughts for Today

Words. They can encourage or tear down. They can honor or humiliate. They can calm or stir up anger. James says this about the tongue: "Sometimes it praises our Lord and Father, and sometimes it curses those who have been made in the image of God. And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth.Surely, my brothers and sisters, this is not right!" - (James 3:9-10 NLT).

Learn to weigh your words. Guard your tongue and speech. The tongue can be a weapon of anger or an agent of blessing.

Consider This...

Practice the art of listening. "Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry" James 1:19 NLT.

Listen to yourself talk. Are you negative and self-pitying? Are you critical of others and yourself? Do you speak before you think . . . and then wish you could take the words back? Do you speak harshly—and stir up anger?

Let God help you learn to control your tongue. Learn to use slow, kind, and soft speech, even silence, to calm you and others. To prevent anger from controlling you.

Prayer : "Our Loving Father Lord, forgive me for the many times I have spoken before thinking. The times my tongue has been a weapon of anger instead of an agent of blessing. Teach me to weigh my words . . . and to listen. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.
