If given the choice, would you speak life, or death?
Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. —Ephesians 4:29
Words have so much power. We can use them to build up, or to tear down, to speak life or to speak death. Let’s build each other up daily and infuse life into our world. Goodness knows we more kindness in the world right now! A kind word could change the entire course of someone’s day, and fill their heart with hope! They will know that someone cares about them, and that they are not alone. That’s priceless!
