Coming up here on the holiday season. With it comes a lot of together time… and stress… and hustle and bustle…
In all this, I have to ask myself what my mouth is doing? Is it being helpful or hurtful?
Am I looking positively at all our gatherings? Overall, yes. Will I enjoy every single moment with every person I interact with? Ummm…….
In that train of thought, I came across this in my Daily Study Bible in Proverbs.
Proverbs 11:9 9With their mouths the godless destroy their neighbors, but through knowledge the righteous escape.
See the translation into daily speak: Every person you meet today is either a demolition site or a construction opportunity. Your words will make a difference. Will they be weapons for destruction or tools for construction?
Holiday goal: be a tool for construction.
