I was sitting and thinking today about how our words have the power to make or break people. We understand, even as the Bible says that life and death is in the power of the tongue (our words) and it is up to us to frame or destroy our world (or another person’s) with the things we say. Jesus was always so careful that everything he spoke was that which the Father spoke and what He did was that which the Father did. He only spoke things to uplift others. Even when he rebuked, it was done in love so that others could benefit. Unfortunately the so-called religious and spiritual people could not see that. Nonetheless, he lived a perfect life as evidence that it can be done while we are on earth. He was a perfect model of the Father and I wonder about us…can we say the same thing?
