Lent Reflection Day 10

 

SCRIPTURE: "I tell you, on the day of judgment people will render an account for every careless word they speak." ~ Matthew 12:36

REFLECTION

Words carry much spiritual power. They wounds and heal. They break down and build up. They discourage and encourage. Jesus places eternal value on them when he says we will be judged by the words we have spoken. During lent, let us think carefully about how we speak to others.


DAILY PRACTICE

Make today a Lenten blessing day. Consciously use words in ways that heal, build up and encourage. Seek to do this in as many conversations as you can during the day.
