DON’T ACT BEFORE YOU THINK

Verse Of The Day : The one who guards his mouth and his tongue keeps his life from troubles. Proverbs 21:23

Thought of The Day : When the mouth is kept from careless words, life is kept from destruction.

LISTEN : Don’t act before you think, think before you act. Watch your mouth, and you will not mount unnecessary pressure on your life. Don’t be reckless with your words, for he or she who is careless with his or her mouth will end up crushing his or her own life. Our verse of the day says,

“The one who guards his mouth and his tongue keeps his life from troubles.”

Proverbs 21:23

My dear, watch your words to save your life. Watch what you say about others or situations around you. You could harm or heal yourself by your words. Words are powerful! There effects come in two ways. They could both destroy and build. They could cause heartbreak and mend hearts; could cause anger and also pacify anger; could bring shame and provoke glory; could encourage and also discourage. The list goes on and on. Depending on how words are used, life could be made or marred. The Bible says,

Death and life are in the power of the tongue:
and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Proverbs 18:21

My dear, keep your mouth and you will save your life. When the mouth is kept from careless words, life is kept from destruction. Determine to always think and speak positively about people and situations. What you say about people or situations will determine how you would feel about them. Speaking positively about people or situations will keep you positive no matter what. When you are positive about people and situations you would save yourself some heart breaks. So, remember to think before you act or talk. Be wise!

What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Watch your tongue and stop speaking evil of others and scheming to destroy their reputations.
2. Determine to handle every situation wisely and stop speaking evil of your situations.
3. If you are hurt by someone else’s action, don’t hold grudges, instead, talk it over with him or her and let it go.
4. Approach every situation with a positive attitude and you will overcome in the end.

Prayer : Dear LORD, I thank You for your words today. Help me to think and speak positively about people and situations. In Jesus’ name, amen!

A Word of Blessing : Today, I speak on your life, may God help you to overcome negative thoughts and live wisely. In Jesus’ name, amen!

Reflection : People or situations can’t dictate your mood if you are positive about them.

Quote : “He or she who is careless with his mouth will end up crushing his or her own life with his words.”
