Excerpt from an old journal:
The power of life and death is in the tongue.
So then…what am I speaking over myself and, more importantly, over other people? How am I using my words? To build up? To tear down? I’m called to edify others…but am I doing it?
I should ask myself these things every single day, with everything I say–that would be so hard, but there’s wisdom in pausing to reflect before we speak.
