Choosing Your Words Like Chocolates

speechWe always have a choice when we open our mouth! We can choose words that harm—or words that heal. Remember: You have not mastered self-control if you have not mastered what you say and don’t say.

When I think about word choices, I can’t keep from thinking about chocolate! More specifically, about a box full of chocolates. If you’re like me (and are lucky enough to ever have a box of chocolates!), you peer into that box of delicious delicacies and oh-so-slowly, oh-so-carefully select which one you will eat.

When you speak, determine that you will seek to deliver only words that are “chocolate” to another person—words that are good, sweet, special, a pick-me-up, and an energizer. Words that are comforting and wise that will minister to the person and to their individual need. As you talk with the people who cross your path, listen to their hearts as they share. Discern their needs. Then consider all of the good things you could say, and choose the perfect one to bless them.

 

Are you stressed out by your responsibilities? At a crossroads in your life? Wondering what to do about a complicated relationship? Don’t guess about the next step and hope for the best. Get a clear view of the right path as you follow God’s wisdom found in Proverbs for a Woman’s Day by Elizabeth George.
