“With [our mouths] we bless the Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brethren, this ought not to be so.”
— James 3:9-10
Live It! Tip of the Week:
Words matter, so speak life! What a beautiful way to prepare our hearts (and the hearts of others) for Easter. At the end of each day this week, take a moment to reflect on the words you used during the day specifically. Did they build up or tear down others? Did they properly reflect your true identity as a child of God? What might be causing you to speak words of dishonor towards self, God, or others? Bring all of these things before the Lord and pray for the grace to begin anew in speaking life tomorrow.
“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.” – Psalm 19:14
