The Power of OUR Words

Today in church we had one of the most beautiful lessons on the SACREDNESS of our words.  How our words make a huge difference on those around us and most importantly our own self and our own countenance.

 This struck me a lot after having a conversation with my cousin last night about a time when a family member was overly harsh to her about a situation with her boyfriend that they didn't understand and felt as though her boyfriend had been wrongly judged.

How many times do we misjudge someone's intentions or think that we know better?  How many times do we bubble over and are impatient rather than take the few extra minutes to communicate something better or make time for someone's silly request?  How many times do we let our words be DESTRUCTIVE instead of using them to help people see themselves the way the Lord and other's do?

Although this video may be 16 minutes, it is some of the best minutes you could spend to think and evaluate how this could help you in your life.  I have watched it 3 times today already and fully intend to use it in my life.

Watch it!  Share it! LIVE IT!
