Spread the Good Word: Psalm 141:3
Today's Good Word sounds like a great prayer that we can all pray at the start of each day. Wouldn't it be wonderful to go an entire day without saying something negative, hurtful, or careless? What about that imaptient, demanding tone we sometimes use? I'm sure we'd all like to reach out and grab some of the words we said yesterday and put them back into our mouths.
We can't change the past, but we can make changes that will hopefully impact the future. By asking God to give us more discernment and wisdom regarding what we say, we're yielding a huge piece of life over to Him — way more than we might realize.
Imagine having just the right words to comfort someone who is hurting, to explain something to a child, to encourage a co-worker, or to quash some idle gossip. What about having a ready testimony to share?
We can all give Jesus more sway over what we say and don't say. Just imagine the great things He can do if we let Him inspire our voice.
