Words with friends

Indeed, we all make many mistakes. For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way. James 3:2

Words are powerful. There are more words than actions that I wish I could take back. Most actions begin with words anyway. How we use our ability to communicate brings life or death into our relationships. Words reveal Jesus. Words express love. Words connect people. What if we spent as much effort getting our tongues under control as we do our diets or our finances?

Lord, help me speak words of life today.
