Anchoring Truths from God's Word

Choose Your Words Wisely

Every day we need to choose our words wisely. Our words are powerful; they can be uplifting, encouraging, and help others, or they can be hurtful, mean, and can tear people down. Our words can build others up and comfort those in distress; however, if we are not careful, our words can destroy relationships and confidence. As the old saying goes, "think before you speak." Not everything that comes to your mind needs to be spoken. The wises man in the world states in this verse that our words need to be chosen wisely. What we say can, indeed, affect others. As we go throughout our day, let's be conscious of what we say, and remember that we are to represent Jesus Christ.

Key Verse

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.

Proverbs 18:10 (KJV)
