What we say to others has a big impact on them. Proverbs 15:1 says “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” This means that simply by what we say to others gives us the power to decide how they perceive us and ultimately our rewards in Heavan.
Thats not to say if someone doesn’t like you for whatever reason you won’t get a reward in Heavan. The Bible tells us someday we will all give an account to God for what we did and said here on earth from others.
I always think about this and what others will give account to me by saying. If they think we are good or bad, happy or sad. As Christians, we must always remember that we represent Christ. So what we say to others and how we conduct ourselfs is very important. We are called to lead by example.
My mother used to tell me this saying where she would say “If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say it at all.” She was right. I found myself especially in school where If I just didn’t say anything at all when I was thinking something not very Christan like. I was always much better off to jut say nothing at all.
Proverbs 21:23 “Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.”
Prayer Starter: Lord, please help me today say positive, encouraging and uplifting words to others. Help me to represent you in a Holy way through my words to do good. Amen.
