Thought for the Week: Psalm 141:3

“Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips” (Psalm 141:3).

Out of the mouth comes life and out of the mouth comes death.  Our words are so powerful.  Think about the words that have passed through the door of your lips even just today.  Were people built up by what you had to say?  Was God glorified by your words?

You have tremendous opportunity to change the way people are feeling with a simple word of affirmation.  You have the power to change how you are feeling by speaking words of Truth and praise to God.  You can veil yourself with kindness and let a train of encouragement trail behind you everywhere you go.  You can be a blessing to all you encounter.

Heavenly Father, forgive me for I speak words of defamation, gossip, and slander.  I twist truth for my benefit, and I give wisdom that I don’t really have.  Especially in my wedding-planning, in this time that seems all about me, I even feel justified in having a sharp tongue.  Help me instead to use my mouth to love You and to love others.  Do a work in this world through my very words.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
