Have you ever listened to yourself?  Do you hear life or death?  Do you hear love or hate?  I’ve been thinking a lot about this…  Here’s some wisdom I found to help me choose my words more wisely:

  • “If someone were to pay you 10 cents for every kind word you ever spoke and collect from you 5 cents for every unkind word, would you be rich or poor?”  ~ Author Unknown

  • “Speak when you are angry — and you will make the best speech you’ll ever regret.” ~ Laurence J. Peter

  • “Kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echoes are endless.” ~ Mother Theresa

  • “By swallowing evil words unsaid, no one has ever harmed his stomach.” ~ Sir Winston Churchill

  • “Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain – and most fools do.” ~ Dale Carnegie

  • “Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” Proverbs 12:18

  • “Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul, health to the bones.” Proverbs 16:24

  • “Death and life are in the power of the tongue” wrote wise King Solomon, Proverbs 18:21

  • “You’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious — the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.” Philippians 4:8

  • “We will have to give an account on the day of judgment for every careless word spoken” Mathew 12:36

    And, as I pray each time before I preach or teach…

    May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart  be pleasing in your sight,  O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14
