Day 24: Don't Say It


Dale Carnegie's first principle~

Don't CRITICIZE, COMPLAIN, or CONDEMN!

Oh how a conversation can go sour in a moment when two or more gathered.

CRITICIZING others to make ourselves feel better.

COMPLAINING about others to blame others for our discontent.

CONDEMNING others to take condemnation from ourselves.

Hmm~

The breaking down of others to build us up~

UNWHOLESOME TALK!

But GOD said,

"Do not let any Unwholesome Talk

come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for

building others up according to their needs,

that it may benefit those who listen" (Ephesians 4:29).

UNWHOLESOME TALK!

Destructive, Damaging Talk

about others to others.

How about

UNWHOLESOME TALK

about "your" self to yourself.

Yup Yourself!

Does that mean UNWHOLESOME TALK about yourself?

Think about it. The weight of UNWHOLESOME talk:

I am not _______. I can't _______.

I will never ________.

Talk that does not build yourself up, but breaks yourself down.

UNWHOLESOME TALK!

How do you talk about yourself?

How do you talk to yourself?

What words are swirling in your head?

But if GOD does not speak UNWHOLESOME words to break us down, why should we?

So what if you replaced your talk with HIS talk~

I,______ (put your name) have been chosen by GOD and adopted as HIS CHILD.(Ephesians 1).

I am forgiven by the grace (Ephesians 1).

I am free from condemnation (Romans 8:1-2).

Therefore, let's lose another pound that weighs us down and

FAST from any UNWHOLESOME TALK~

about yourself & others by fixing our eyes on the

WHOLESOME ONE Who changes all your~

"I am not", "I can't", "I will never"~ to

I AM! I CAN! I WILL!

Because HIS "WORDS" Say so (listen to the song below)!
