This is a very hard subject for me. I tend to have days when I struggle greatly in this area and today happens to be one of those days. I have realized the problem today and I am trying hard to control my tongue and praying. Now, I don't mean that I am just yelling and screaming at my children, but I am not talking to them in a loving and encouraging manner either. I do believe it rubs off on my children as well, when I talk in an unloving manner, so do they.
So, my challenge to myself and to you today is to make sure our words are edifying and loving to those around us. Do our words build them up or tear them down?
If you think about it, will you pray for me in this area today?
