Did you know that the tongue is the strongest muscle in your body? Well, it is. And it’s a pretty strong for a reason. The tongue allows you to speak.
When I sit back and really think about that – I again am awed by the power of my creator. Words have the power to build up or to tear down. The bible talks about this a lot!
“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” —Ephesians 4:29
That verse is one of my favorites. It’s very important to be self aware of how what you say matters. I try to keep a watch on people’s body language while I’m talking. And I do make mistakes. But I am quick to apologize and learn for the next time.
So for you today – I remind you to watch what you say. And instead of tearing someone down – try building them up. Make a difference in someone else’s day.
