What is the impact of my speech?

Self Control

I don’t like to get in trouble. I do get in trouble even though I don’t like it. Usually it is something I’ve said more than something I’ve done. God’s goal for me is to keep my soul from troubles.

There is some great news. Jesus gives me the pathway to have the fruit of the spirit of self-control. It is growing in me. That is something to shout about.

What is the impact of my speech? It has the power of life and death. That sounds extreme but it is true. Words can kill. Words can give life. Will I choose words the bear fruit of life? Will I speak life into others? Will the love of Jesus become dominant in my words?

He who guards his mouth and his tongue, guards his soul from troubles. | Proverbs 21:23

Can I control my words? My speech has an enormous influence for good or ill and is a sure guide to my character. The power of what I say is indisputable. Consider the billions spent on therapy because of what others said about us when we were young.  What I say to others matters. That is tough but true.

Self-control is enabled by the Holy Spirit and I must allow His influence to take fruit. I must excerpt my will to come under the influence of Jesus, my Master.

Leadership the Jesus: A Faith at work series — Looking how to focus your faith at work? | This series of leadership programs focuses on leadership skills that drive the purpose and passion for work as laid out by Jesus and based on sound scripture. We might see faith and work as estranged. It can be frustrating. But, in truth, faith and work should share a crucial aim: to see the unseen at work through the power of the Holy Spirit. Nothing new has been made without faith in God. Nothing unseen has been seen without work. When the force of what we do hits why we do it, we wither, or we flourish. Learn more here.
