What words do you hear yourself say most often?
Jesus said we can be defiled by what comes out of our mouth (Matthew 15:11). David prayed that the words from his mouth would please the Lord (Psalm 19:14). Psychological studies show we grow to believe what we say.
What might happen if we said the following words aloud to ourselves this week?
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13:6-7
Would it remind us to . . .
- Be happier when we see truth win over evil
- Not give up on others
- Trust more often
- Look for the best
- Keep going to the end?
