Words Matter

It’s not what goes into your mouth that defiles you; you are defiled by the words that come out of your mouth.”
~ Matthew 15:11 [NLT]

Our words have power! Our words are a reflection of the state of our hearts.  If our hearts are filled with bitterness then unkind words are likely to come from our mouths.  If we are discouraged, negativity is likely to be found in our conversations.  Conversely, if we want to live joyful and holy lives our words must be filled with kindness, patience, and love.
