Verse of the day
For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.
Words are life. They create, they also destroy. It is almost inescapable that offences arise in relationships, and when they do, we must take care how we react in words (or deeds). Words hold the tendency to heal situations or make them worse.
Who is perfect?
The power of words leads James to place it as a measure for self-control. If one does not offend in word, “he is perfect and able also to control his whole body,” he says. This implies that whoever has learned to always speak as Jesus would have him speak has yielded to the Spirit’s control and is rarely with any other character flaw.
God is concerned about such things as the words we speak; not only what we say but how we say them. He expects and demands that the words from our lips must be good and edifying, ministering grace to all who hear.
The Holy Spirit’s control over our words makes us speak words that increase the worth of people, build faith in them, and bless them. If we are can yield our words to Him, we can yield any other part of our body.
Reference: Ephesians 4:29
Blessed Holy Spirit, You control my words and cause them to edify anyone who hears. From this day and forever.
