The Power in the Words We Speak (3 of 5)

The Power of the Words We Speak Part III

Proverbs 16:23
“I think before I speak because the mind of the wise instructs his mouth.”

Many times we speak before we think and once those words are spoken if they are not encouraging then you can ask for forgiveness but you can never take words back. There is a demonstration used that when you squeeze a tube of toothpaste out on a plate then try to put the toothpaste back in the tube it is quite impossible. These are just like the words we speak once spoken you can’t take them back. Sometimes I like to say make sure you are using you mouth gate that filters the words we speak.

Today your challenge is to make sure you think before you speak. Now don’t think too long because you might come of a little weird or funny, but seriously think before you speak. Use your mouth gate to filter only encouraging words today.
