The words you say to yourself.

You can be honest without being mean.
You can be mean without being honest.
God has given you the great privilege of being the spark that lights the fire.
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.
