“Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark.”
James 3:5 NIV
Words are powerful.
The words you say to yourself and the words you say to others.
We are all practicing “social distancing” in order to slow the spread of Covid-19 but right now we need to use our words to encourage and uplift people more than ever before.
Now is not the time for “verbal distancing”. In fact, your words have more power than ever before.
Your words can spark hope and inspire people or they can light a fire of fear and paranoia. Choose life. Choose hope. Choose care. Choose encouragement.
God has given you the great privilege of being the spark that lights the fire in the hearts of the people you are connecting to.
Whether it is a fire to warm and nourish others or one that burns and destroys them is up to you.
Use your words to light a fire of faith in someone’s heart.
Encourage, uplift, pray for and love those around you today.
What you say matters and impacts people’s lives.
