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.
The breaking down of others to build us up~
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).
Destructive, Damaging Talk
about others to others.
about "your" self to 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.
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)!
