AN ANXIOUS HEART WEIGHS A MAN DOWN, BUT A KIND WORD CHEERS HIM UP.
( PROVERBS 12:25 *NIV )

Dear Friend,
It is important for a Child of God to be very careful of the words we speak!   For our Savior, Jesus Christ said; 
“NOTHING OUTSIDE A MAN CAN MAKE HIM UNCLEAN BY GOING INTO HIM, RATHER IT IS WHAT COMES OUT OF A MAN THAT MAKES HIM UNCLEAN.”  ( MARK 7:15 )

It is also written; WITH THE TONGUE WE PRAISE OUR LORD AND FATHER, AND WITH IT WE CURSE MEN, WHO HAVE BEEN MADE IN GOD’S LIKENESS.  OUT OF THE SAME MOUTH COME PRAISE AND CURSING.  MY BROTHERS, THIS SHOULD NOT BE.  (JAMES 3:9-10 )

So friend, choose your words carefully  and remember that positive words bring positive results, while negative words always bring negative results!  After all; PLEASANT WORDS ARE LIKE A HONEYCOMB, SWEETNESS TO THE SOUL AND HEALTH TO THE BONES.   (PROVERBS 16:24 )

These verses bring to mind a sign posted on the wall of a professor of mine, many years ago.  I will never forget it, for it so perfectly described him.  It read as follows:

Be careful of the words you speak,
And keep them soft and sweet!
For you never know from day to day,
Which words you’ll have to eat!

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
