Faith at Work Week 2: Midweek Miracle


On Sunday, we spoke about being quick to hear and slow to speak from James 1:19. I think it was Abraham Lincoln who said, "It is better to be silent and thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt". Gandhi put it this way: "It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than to have words without heart."


The words you choose to use are powerful! They can encourage, or they can cut deep and tear someone apart. Whether you are talking to a friend or even a complete stranger, be careful about your words. Don't say anything that God would not say. As an act of your will, give your attitudes and thoughts to the Lord. Even if you want to cut someone down, choose to curb that tongue. Instead, use your tongue to pray.
