Reflection: We have heard it said that thoughts become words, words become actions, actions become legacy. Solomon reminds us to not let our words cause our flesh to sin. The Psalmist tells us that life and death are in the power of the tongue.
Application: What is God asking you to do that you are saying, “no” to? Your words build your life, they impact your heart, and can support or demolish your motivation. If God is calling you, answer Him in the affirmative. For any other response will tear your worlds apart.
Prayer: God, remind us of Your faithfulness. Remind us of the depth and breadth of Your love. God, we want what You want–help our words affirm that faith. Amen.
