We Need to Be Aware of How We Use Our Words

Luke 6:38 “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”

Our actions and thoughts have consequences and our deeds will often bear out future blessings or pains.  We must guard our heart from evil words, evil deeds, evil thoughts, and evil actions as they are the catalyst for sowing future destruction in our lives. 

The Bible teaches us in the scripture reference above that we will receive a harvest of whatever seed we sow into our lives or into the lives of others.  Many of us have been guilty of or are a part of speaking/thinking negatively towards others or certain situations or things and I can assure you that God does not desire it to be so for He states it time and time again in the Holy Scriptures.

When we as brothers and sisters in Christ have an issue with one another we should always try to speak as positive as we can (without lying) into the situation as we never know what seeds our words, actions or thoughts could be sowing. 

For instance if a certain family member, friend, co-worker, spouse etc., does something that brings negativity into our lives we should speak as positive as we can into the situation accounting for the grace that God has brought us to in our lives so far. 

None of us are perfect but God has granted us all his unmerited mercy and grace and expects us as believers to show it to others.  The very words that you speak to someone my change their lives for their good or to their detriment (blessing or curse them) and in Matthew 12:36 (KJV: His word says: But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.”

 Let us all pray and ask God to show us how to be better in this area so that we can plant seeds that will produce good fruit in the lives of others as well as our own lives. 

A kind word to someone that angers you my be the opportunity that God has placed before you to take them off of the path to destruction or it could be the blessing that they need to start seeing God’s hand in their life.
