Speak what is the best not what is the worst


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times The sharpest sword ever wielded by human beings is the tongue which can inflict greater and more lasting damage than blades made of steel or iron ever could. In fact, when wielded intemperately and foolishly or venomously and malevolently or both, the tongue can cause acts of violence ranging from the individual to the global with disastrous and tragic results. A far better use of the human ability to speak is to speak what thus saith the Lord in His holy book, The Bible. When we let The Bible guide us in what we say to others, we are bringing a message of hope, forgiveness and love that gives those who hear it the chance to turn their lives around and those who are speaking it the opportunity to grow closer to God. When it comes to what we say, we have the choice of either speaking as Christ spoke and work to bring about reconciliation and redemption or we can speak as His enemy would have us to speak and cause pain, suffering, heartache and disaster. Will you use your God-given ability to speak to spread the good news of the truth of Jesus Christ or will you use it to spread the lies of the Devil?
