We laugh, we joke, we use sarcasm to lighten the mood. We speak life, yet sadly, we also speak death.
Now, the bible is explicit about this, but we often overlook it. No big deal, it’s just idle chatter. What does it really hurt? Your tongue or your Facebook status, for modern day purposes, is not just some meaningless tool for brute communication-it wields a great power.
What is the message I am communicating?
What am I speaking over the people around me?
What am I speaking over myself?
If you are constantly speaking out or thinking judgement, negativity, & criticism over yourself, guess what? Pretty soon those things will become true, because you will start to believe them.
Join me in speaking life. I don’t want to keep up this dichotomy. I want to live a life worthy and pleasing to God. I want life and not death, and I want that for others. Because when I speak tongue in cheek, it’s not all fun and games- someone gets hurt.
