Let’s talk about POWER today.
Or maybe you are like me and may be feeling powerless this morning. Your world may be rocked by circumstance and conflict. You may feel like you are in the middle of a cyclone, whirlwind, tornado, hurricane, tsunami-maybe it is one you helped create, or maybe you find yourself in the center of a controversy that you had no hand in starting.
It is not a comfortable place to be, but God has not left us powerless.
Our power comes from the little muscle that resides in our mouth… our tongue. We can fan the flames of hurt feelings and anger, using our words to help stir up dissension.
“So let’s agree to use all our energy in getting along with each other. Help others with encouraging words; don’t drag them down by finding fault.”
Conflicts happen in governments, friendships, families, churches. I am not a total Pollyanna. I know people will not always get along, but there is a way to handle disagreements without destroying one another.
How we resolve them as Christians is so important. The world is watching.
I heard this song by Toby Mac and he says exactly what I am trying to say, only he says it better and with a good beat…..
I don’t know about you, but I, with God’s help, am going to use my tongue to SPEAK LIFE even when I don’t really want to. Hold me accountable, would you?
