Words That Encourage
Chosen by God!
We are to control what we say so that we can be peacemakers rather than those who create chaos and confusion. Losing control of our speech when we are angry can lead to trouble in our lives. Anger is an emotion that is usually the result of coming to a conclusion without all of the facts.
“An angry man stirs up conflict, and a hot-tempered man increases rebellion.” (Proverbs 29:22 HCSB)
It’s important to control our words so we don’t provoke anger, create chaos, or cause confusion. Our words are powerful and impactful which is why we must choose them wisely.
Anger is also an emotion that should cause us to think and not react. Hurtful words are said in anger which is why self-control, especially in these moment, is so important.
I heard this once and it’s stayed with me. There are two types of people who show up at a fire. One comes with oil. The other comes with water. It reminds me that our words can destroy or they can build. It’s really up to us. My husband gave me some wise advice early in our marriage. He said, just because you think it doesn’t mean you have to say it.
Our words can be a creative force or a destructive force. The choice is ours. We really do get to decide, which is why we can’t allow anger to control our words.
