Something to Think About...Words Matter


Grace The Morning Meal
by Rudolph Epp 1834-1910 German
Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. All fruits of the Spirit. All available to us through believing and confessing Jesus as our Lord and Savior. All available to us by repenting of our sins, by turning to Him daily, hourly, and moment by moment as needed for a fresh filling of His strength, hope, power, and love.

Jesus said that all the commandments were summed up into two. “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and (love) your neighbor as yourself."
~~~~
Love God and love others. Everything we need for success in life and relationships wrapped up in a few words.
~~~~
Words Matter.
Just Something to Think About....

  3. Laura,

    Yes, they matter! Words can build up or tear down and they're so hard to take back! That little tongue is the hardest thing to guard, isn't it? Wise words you spoke today! :)

    Blessings,
    Tammy

  4. Yes, words certainly do matter! I also love the scripture where Jesus states that what ever you do unto your fellow men you also do unto him. I've gone blank and can't think of exactly what it says. Happy Day!
    hugs,

Hello! I love it when y'all talk back!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I'm healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy. Please understand if I don't answer. This is all new to me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING FOR ME!!!
I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments.

Be blessed!
Laura
