Proverbs 18:20 NIV
From the fruit of their mouth a person’s stomach is filled;
with the harvest of their lips they are satisfied.
Isn’t this another vivid image! It reminds us that words are more than just passing sounds, here one moment and gone the next. What we say has lasting consequences, our words are seeds that bear fruit, and not only do our words impact others, but they have an enduring impact on us too – the way we talk feeds us and shapes our well being and identity. I’m sure this must extend to our written language, our emails, social media posts and letters. Perhaps we should pay our language as much attention as we do our diet…
Spirit, help me to produce good fruit through my conversation today – may my words in conversation and in writing be an act of worship.
Ps. Don’t forget to pray for and promote the Alpha Course…
