Do Your Words Bring Blisters or Blessings!

Do you tend to blurt out hot and hurtful words that cause problems and damage your relationships?
 
Do you desire to talk less and say more?
 
Do you want to be a better manager of your mouth?
 
God's Word provides us with invaluable insights linked to our communication: "When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable but he who restrains his lips is wise."(Proverbs 10:19)

Nothing creates more problems more quickly than people spewing hot and hurtful words from an unbridled tongue. In 30 seconds you can rip apart a 30 year friendship with a hateful speech.

If your words tend to shoot suddenly from your mouth like poisoned darts, you need to re-surrender your communication to the Lordship of King Jesus. Christ-flavored people learn to consistently manage their mouth by pouring their thoughts through the Jesus- filter. Simply ask yourself, "What would Jesus say?"
 
Proverbs 17:27 instructs, "He who restrains his words has knowledge. And he who has a cool spirit is a person of understanding." When you exercise wisdom and discipline, you will talk less and listen more! And when you do speak, you will remember to keep your words warm and sweet which enables your communication to bring blessings and not blisters.
 
Remember this helpful truth: "Your ears are open and unguarded, but your tongue is located behind ivory bars. So listen more and speak less to become God's all-stars!"Furthermore, I have discovered that light travels faster than sound; consequently, many people appear bright until you hear them speak! Learn to speak less and say more.
 
Join me in seeking to master the Christ-honoring discipline of constantly using the Jesus-filter to manage your mouth. Then your communication will be move from hot words that scorch your ailing relationship to warm words that light up your healthy friendship!
