Speak truth, in love
Sometimes, the most selfless thing we can do is give thought to our words. Sometimes being selfless is keeping something in when you want to say it so badly. It’s turning the other cheek and allowing them to have the last word (even if you have the perfect comeback). Sometimes the selfless thing to do is simply make sure that you are speaking kind words to the people around you.
Look at this way. Your words are going build up or tear down. The choice is yours. Either you will use your words to help, encourage, correct, and love. Or you can continue to let the words you speak be empty, meaningless and sometimes even hurtful.
How will you use your words?
