Proverbs 16:23 (NLT) From a wise mind comes wise speech; the words of the wise are persuasive.
If you want to help your family and friends overcome tough times of life, then you must measure your words carefully. And that’s exactly what God wants you to do. God’s Word reminds us that “Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing” (Proverbs 12:18 NIV).
Today, make this promise to yourself: vow to be an honest, effective, encouraging communicator at work, at home, at ministry and everyplace in between. Speak thoughtfully, not impulsively. Use words of kindness and praise, not words of anger or condemnation. Learn how to be truthful without destroying someone.
Remember that you have the power to heal others or to injure them, to lift others up or to hold them back. And when you learn how to lift them up, you will soon discover that you have lifted yourself up, too (Proverbs 18:21). And all this takes place in our communication to others! It’s time to get it right at home, at work, in ministry, and in all our relationships’, it’s called “The Right Communication”
Quote- Charles Stanley “Attitude and the spirit in which we communicate are as important as the words we say”.
For His Kingdom,
