The Bible tells us that we literally eat the words we say. What we say impacts us & everyone we encounter. (Proverbs 18:20-21)
I. Words can discourage us.
Words can harm us if we let them. (Titus 1:7-11)
II. Words can divide us.
One thing God hates is those who sow discord among brothers. (Proverbs 6:12-19)
III. Words can Encourage us!
David encouraged himself. (1 Samuel 30:1-6)
IV. Words can SAVE OTHERS!
Our Words should show others the GRACE of God! (Romans 10:8-15)
V. Words can Encourage OTHERS!
Our Words should show others the GRACE of God! (Colossians 4:2-6)
Our Words should lovingly help those in sin see the error of their way. As Nathan helped David see his sin, we can help others see what is hurting them. (2 Samuel 12:1-15)
Our Words should speak Blessings for our Family, our Church & for God’s Kingdom.
VI. Words can PLEASE God!
All of our words are to PLEASE GOD, at all times! (Psalm 19:7-14)
