A reminder about our speech…

I’ve been thinking about the angels at the birth of Jesus who exclaimed

Glory to God in the highest!

Like the angels, I think I’m safe in suggesting that the 1st best use of our speech is to praise and glorify God. And a second would be to be an encouragement to our fellows!

But, life often affects our temperament in such a way that we need a remainder. We’re still under construction after all. I received a good reminder this morning:

“Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.” (Ephesians‬ ‭4:29‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

May our words bring light to our lives like a sunrise as the sunrise highlights the renovation of this church.

    More from your boy Bono…

    “And I’m a long, long way from Your hill on Calvary, and I’m a long way from where I was and where I need to be.”
    Thanks be to our Father…
