Yesterday I wrote about the importance of what we think, and this also counts for what we say.
It is also very important what we listen to, as we are influenced greatly by what we take in to our hearts and minds.
I have stopped listening to a number of radio programs and stations due to the constant negativity being spoken out.
I was listening to one of the “better” programs today and even they were becoming too negative for me!
They were reporting about a tennis tournament where a British player had done really well winning 6-3 6-1.
This in anyone’s definition is a good result and a result to be celebrated.
However the first thing the newsreader asked the reporter was this, “So is there any evidence of the hip injury we think she has?”
No mention of the score, or how well the player had done or any sense of celebration about the success of the British player.
No, straight in to a negative comment about a potential problem!
Everyone is affected by the words they speak out and the words spoken out over them.
We know that death and life are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18 v 21); important for our own lives and important for those we speak about.
I would encourage you to be more positive and less negative; I can assure that this will improve your life and improve the lives of those around you.
Take the challenge and think about the words you are speaking out!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I know death and life are in the power of my tongue, and thank you that I am capable of making more positive remarks”.
Proverbs 18 v 21…..Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof
