Expecting #22 -- Our WORDS... HE is asking us to be different!
On Monday morning......
The Holy Spirit awoke me up and gave me a list of of subjects for this prayer /blog for the next few days -- today is the FIRST one HE gave me....
Mathew 5.37 37 All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.[a] - NIV
Matthew 5:37The Message (MSG)
33-37 “And don’t say anything you don’t mean. This counsel is embedded deep in our traditions. You only make things worse when you lay down a smoke screen of pious talk, saying, ‘I’ll pray for you,’ and never doing it, or saying, ‘God be with you,’ and not meaning it. You don’t make your words true by embellishing them with religious lace. In making your speech sound more religious, it becomes less true. Just say ‘yes’ and ‘no.’ When you manipulate words to get your own way, you go wrong.
Philippians 4:8New International Version (NIV)
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
This means....I watch my tongue.
I watch what I 'share' on FB.
I watch what I comment on.
And it may mean that it is time to refine a few things.
Our words and our speech should always glorify HIM. And show Jesus' love.
Lord, for my sister in Christ who KNOWS this and has taught me more than she knows....this post is more for ME today -- than another -- God - my words will be few... God my words will edify.God - forgive me -- thank you for allowing me t be made new - each morning...In Jesus name...Amen.
