The Power of your Words

When one child was asked the meaning of "love" they answered, When you love someone, their name is safe in your mouth.

It should be a constant decision that you NEVER EVER NEVER speak badly about your significant other.  Faith comes by hearing, (Rom 10.17), and when you speak negatively about your guy/girl, you hear it and you believe it all the more.   Your words are either like kindling wood piling up and encouraging the raging fire, or like a fire extinguisher.

James 3:5 A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything—or destroy it!   It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire.

Proverbs 26:20    When you run out of wood, the fire goes out; when the gossip ends, the quarrel dies down.

Is the name of your guy/girl safe in YOUR mouth?  Have you spoken badly of them? Remember, what you feed GROWS, what you starve DIES.  It starts from what you ALLOW yourself to THINK of the other person.  What you THINK WILL eventually come out of your mouth!  Change the way you THINK FIRST.  Then be sure to ONLY speak well ALWAYS of your spouse, whether they are present or absent.   And you WILL eat the fruit of the words you say about them.

Proverbs 18:21    Words kill, words give life;
they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.

Challenge:  Make sure ALL your words are LIFE.  Check your innermost THOUGHTS about your significant other and do NOT make excuses or allow yourself to think badly about him/her.  Speak as many words that give life as you can!
