According to Proverbs 18:21,” there is power of life and death in the tongue.”  Due to the fact that the tongue is a powerful weapon, we most be ever so careful the manner in which we form our words when we are attempting to express ourselves. We must proactively live each day in such a way that we speak words that affirm, encourage, uplift and inspire people.  Rather than speak of words that kill, destroy or put down people and leave them feeling bad about themselves.

Are your words building or destroying others?

What is the true essence of LOVE?

Is it what you do for yourself or another person?

Is it how you treat yourself or the others?

Is it what you buy for them or what they purchase for you?

No, that’s not the foundation of love.

Love is not boastful, prideful, or selfish.  Love covers a multitude of sins.

Love tells you the truth even when you don’t want to hear it.

Love is patient.

Love is kind.

Love is color-blind.

Love endures all things.



-1 Corinthians 13:4-5
