In a message called #NOFILTER on May 3rd, we talked about the power of words; spoken and posted.
Whether you’re a follower of Christ or not, you need to consider what you say/post because there’s great power in words. If you’re a follower of Christ, God holds us to a higher standard and we need to TWEAK it before we Speak It (or post it).
PROVERBS 18:21 Msg says: Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.
Before we SPEAK IT or POST IT, we need to TWEAK it… How? Weave Kindness Into My Words.
Kindness means I choose to be gracious instead of harsh…in my actions & my words
Are the words you say or post woven together with Kindness? If not – why not?
PROVERBS 16:24 NIrV says: Kind words are like honey. They are sweet to the spirit and bring healing to the body.
Kindness in words or actions – can bring healing to others & to you. Even science suggests kindness makes you happier & is good for your heart. If you want a healthier lifestyle – try a little kindness.
I read a quote a while back that says: Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle. We don’t always know what people are going through so consider kindness. Jesus was pretty clear about what’s most important; He said love your neighbor. Kindness is just another way of demonstrating love & compassion.
I’ve seen kindness totally change attitudes & the atmosphere of a tough situation….so let’s make it our habit to be kind…and remember to…
TWEAK It Before You Speak It. Weave some kindness into your words (and posts).
