Family Friday

The Blessing of Words

You hear them all day. Some are positive and some are not. Some are long and some are short. Some represent God...many do not.
What you do with your words can be a positive force in your family. Positive words can:

Affirm love
Prove forgiveness
Give hope to a failing relationship
Inspire someone to try harder
Heal wounds inflicted by another
Boost self-esteem
Bring about the most joyous sound on earth...laughter
Bond a family together
Envision a positive future for a loved one
Bless a starving soul
End family feuds
Make a friend of a perceived enemy
Introduce someone to Christ
Change someone's day...maybe even their outlook on life
Make the world a better place

In the midst of your family, use words to be a powerful force for good!
"Encourage one another, and build each other up..." (1 Thessalonians 5:11)

Words are powerful.We do need to use them to encourage. We've all benefited from positive words in our lives so we can decide to use them every day.
