eSeed: Somebody's Listening

Read 1 Timothy 4:12
I asked a friend, “Has your baby learned to talk yet?”

“Yes, sir,” he answered. “Now we’re teaching her to keep quiet.”

There’s a time to keep quiet and a time to speak up, for somebody’s listening to you.
When you speak a bad word, somebody hears it, and is ruined by it. A word isn’t a bird. If it flies out, you’ll never catch it again.

When you speak a good word, somebody hears it, and is redeemed by it. Bunyan heard some women talk about the Lord with such joyful enthusiasm that he called upon Him and was saved. Then we wrote Pilgrim’s Progress.

Your words will either help or hurt. You’ll weigh them, won’t you?

Prayer: Give us, Father, a hatred for evil and a love for righteousness. Let no evil thoughts be in our minds, no evil words on our lips, and no evil ways in our lives. Make us clean: through Christ. Amen.
