ARROWS AND SWORDS
We all know arrows and swords are weapons designed to kill.
Did you know our "words" can also harm and injure others contrary to God's will?
Have you ever spoken words that cut another to the depths of their heart?
Have you ever used your words to completely rip someone apart?
Do you try to "JUSTIFY" your profanity and your unchristlike behavior?
Before you "move your tongue" do you run the words you are about to speak, by Jesus your Savior???
Do you cut others down with gossip behind their backs and not to their face?
Aren't all the words of a Christian supposed to be spoken with love, mercy, and grace?
The Holy Bible says unchristlike words should never leave a Christian's lips!
How many of your arrow like words have shot out with a "poison tip"?
Our words can inflict injuries on another's spirit that will last for life!
How many of your arrows are still "embedded" in the heart of your children, husband, or wife?
Think about your arrows or words and the serious damage they can do!
Would you want someone firing those poisoned tipped words or arrows at you?
How can profanity and gossip issue forth from the mouth of one truly "BORN AGAIN"?
How can a true Christian's Fountain pour out holy words, followed by evil words of Sin?
How many "apologies" have you offered to others after you wounded their heart with profanity laced words?
Or do you "tell yourself" that God will never punish "a saint like you" because you attend church 3 times a week like a "good little bird"?
Time for all of us Christians to seriously "FAST AND PRAY"!
Time for all of us Christians to remember that God is "listening" to "every" word we say!
When a Christian fires evil words of the flesh at you and me!
It's a "clear sign" that their heart is "FAR" from where it needs to be!
