Thought For Today – December 16

Eat Your Words!

Would you like to eat your words? Are the words and statements which come from our mouths food for thought and edifying to ourselves and others, or are they poisonous and destructive of ourselves and others? Do the words that proceed from our mouths add health and vitality and strength for those who receive them? The words that come from our mouths are only the aroma, as it were, or the smell of that which actually dwells within us. If in our heart there is produced the fruits of the Spirit of God by the presence of the Holy Spirit within us, then our words which proceed from our mouths will be a sweet savor, or a sweet smell to the Lord. They will be uplifting to ourselves, positive in nature, and glorifying and pleasing to God. Our conversation, and our words paint a picture of that which we actually are on the inside. The words and statements which come from our mouths not only feed ourselves, but others around us as well.

We are and become that which we say we are. We believe that which we say we believe. We can do that which we say we can do. We have that which we say we have. Our statements and words determine our success or failure in life. Our words feed us.

“A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” Proverbs 18:20, 21. “Doth not the ear try words, and the mouth taste his meat? Job 12: 11. “But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment . For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” Matthew 12: 36, 37.

Let us pray that the words of our mouth and the meditations of our heart be acceptable to God our Father who hears every word and knows every thought.
