Silver Run Baptist Church - Pastor Kip McKee – November 7, 2010 Morning Service
Proverbs 18:20-21 & James 3:1-12
I. The Words we use MATTER! Our words bring us Blessings or Hardships.
Our words give POWER to GOOD things or POWER to evil. The choice is ours.
Our souls literally EAT the words we say. (Proverbs 18:20-21)
Our Praises bring Blessings to us!
Our negative words poison us & others.
Negative words are useful tools for Satan.
II. Criticism should come SLOWLY because NO ONE is perfect!
Only God and His Word can accurately judge us.
Our Christian command is to help each other grow CLOSER to Jesus by encouraging one another. (James 3:1-2)
Jesus said, “He who is without sin throw the first stone.” (John 8:2-11)
III. Criticism should come SLOWLY because we do not always see God’s Plan in the life of others!
God works in mysterious ways. No man can figure out all God is doing with us. (Isaiah 55:6-11 & John 9:1-7)
Let’s Speak Blessings into our life & the Life of Others!
Let’s ENCOURAGE & BUILD Each Other UP!
