The Apostle Paul wrote in the book of Ephesians to “let no unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” So much is written about the lack of respect, and civility among even the young. Even in movies, and in music, our spirits and souls are not sent soaring into atmosphere, instead we are brought spiraling down into the abyss.
But that is not what we are called to do. Words are mean to propel, to enlighten, to teach, to push our imaginations into worlds beyond worlds. As Christians we are told to speak the speak the truth in love “We can be born anew through Love. Love is the healing power and God is love.” Encouraging words create, heals, transforms and transport us into God’s amazing light.
Make a pact today to show God’s love by encouraging someone with words of love.
