Have we ever thought how influential the words we speak are? Do we know what kind of impact our speech can have on a person who desperately needs to hear an encouraging word?
When someone is trying to do something for the Lord, do we try to help them by giving words of encouragement or do we discourage them with snide or hateful remarks? We need to ask ourselves these questions.
We can speak words to uplift others or words that will bring them down.
It is important to be careful of the way we act and the words we speak. Is Jesus lifted up in the things we say and do?
We should speak to others as we want them to speak to us. It makes us feel good when someone speaks encouraging words to us.
“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace to the hearers.” Ephesians 4:29
We should all work together for the cause of Christ, using words of encouragement.
