My pastor read a statistic in church that I wanted to pass along to you today. The average person speaks between 25,000 and 50,000 words every single day. Every day! At the end of a week, that would end up being about a novel’s worth of words. What if someone was typing down every word you said today, and you could read them back to yourself? Would you find words that you’re proud of? Words spoken out of anger? Words you would take back if you could?
“Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry. (James 1:18-20)”
This week, lets be aware of how easy it is to go through the motions with our words. Think before you speak, and ask God to help you choose your 25,000 words wisely!
