We Have To Do This

I have such a sense of urgency on my heart this morning to let those around me know they are loved. When I am finished writing this blog, I must begin contacting those on my heart. I feel so often, people sit back and don’t say things like, “I love you” or “I appreciate you” or “great job”, “you look beautiful” and many other phrases. My love language includes hearing things like this. Does yours? Does the person you are married to? Or others you work with? It takes two seconds of time to encourage or compliment someone. So many times, I think we don’t say something because we assume “they know that already”. Maybe so, maybe not or maybe they just need to hear it. Does it take so much from your day to let someone know you are thinking about them? To tell them you love them or they are doing great? To invest time in a life? Your mouth is as sharp as a sword – and – brings life or death to any situation around you. If you are constantly negative or tearing down, that person will eventually break down if no one else is around building up at the same time. Why be responsible for something so horrible…

The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. – Proverbs 18:21

Give life! Speak to someone today and (if you have to) make yourself be kind. This is not to say we don’t have tiff’s and arguments with people. The key to this is being able to get past the argument, forgive, and love (which has a huge definition of what we should and should not do to apply to this argument) then you keep moving forward. We must drop the pride of needing to prove a point, or be right or whatever else is in your mind. Loving someone is more important than any of that.
