THE POWER OF WORDS

October 2, 2011

"Words kill, words give life; they're either poison or fruit - you choose." - Proverbs 18:21 (The Message)

 

Reflection Questions:

  1. How have the words of someone else-positive or negative-impacted my life?
  2. Where have I seen the constructive and destructive power of my own words at work in my relationships?
  3. Jesus said, "Whatever is in your heart determines what you say" (Matthew 12:34). What do my words reveal about what's going on in my heart? What would I like to see transformed?
  4. How will I intentionally use my words to help or encourage someone this week?
