Speak Life


It seems like I always brush right by passages I think I’m doing okay on. But I bet if we all analyzed our days we’d realize we fall a bit short.

What if all Christians took a challenge today- to see each person as a story? A story that has good parts and really painful parts. What if we saw each person and then tried to imagine their hurt? What if we realized our words have the ability to either speak life or death into their soul?

Proverbs 18:21, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
    and those who love it will eat its fruits.”

Let’s choose to breathe life into people. God breathed life into our lungs when he created us. Because of Him we see green growth in the ground or babies being born- new life is all around us! A kind word is like sweet desert rain on a soul. One word of heartfelt encouragement can turn around a whole life. {Tweet this!}

Let’s be those kind of people who breathe life with our words! Rise up to the challenge!
