When was the last time you felt healed and restored by what someone said to you? What did that person say that made you feel this way?
As we consider the things we say—to our spouse or partner, family, friends, colleagues, and even strangers, may we be moved to speak words that encourage. May Jesus, the Word Incarnate, always be our example, guide, and strength.
Father, just as Your words bring us life, cleanse us and gift us with words of comfort and healing for those around us. May we speak to build up and not tear down. Amen.
