An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.
(Proverbs 12:25 *NIV)


It is important for a Child of God to be very careful of the words we speak!
For our Savior Jesus Christ said;
"Listen to me, everyone, and understand this. Nothing outside a man can
make him 'unclean' by going into him. Rather, it is what comes out of a man
that makes him 'unclean.'" (Mark 7:14-15)

It is also written; "With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and
with it we curse men, who have been made in God's likeness. Out of the same
mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be."

(James 3:9-10)

So, we need to choose our words carefully and remember that positive
words bring positive results, while negative words always bring negative
results! After all, Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and
healing to the bones. (Proverbs 16:24)

These verses bring to mind a sign posted on the wall of a Professor of
mine, many years ago. I will never forget it. It read as follows:

Be careful of the words you speak,
And keep them soft and sweet!
For you never know from day to day,
Which words you'll have to eat!

In His Love & Service,

Pastor Larry E. Campbell
St. Paul A.M.E. Church, San Bernardino, CA
