In this new year I encourage you to build your house wisely. Far too often we discount the importance of our words. We mindlessly talk negatively about our lives, ourselves, our friends, our family, and so on and then we wonder why things turn out badly. The Bible says the power of life and death is in the tongue. Will you use your words to build or to tear down? Will you use your words to build your house beautifully or will you snare yourself in a prison of negativity? Be mindful and intentional about your words and how you use them to describe your life because they will paint your future. Happy New Year!
