One of the most powerful forces in our world is the human tongue. The words that we speak to others have an incredible ability to impact others for good or for bad, to build up others or to tear them down.
During the month of February I will be leading a Life Group on Wednesday nights at 6 PM in the Upper Room focusing on Speaking Words of Love. Here is a brief overview of some of the topics I will cover:
Week 1 - January 25: What does the bible say about the power of the tongue to build up or destroy?
Week 2 - February 1: What are the things in our heart and soul that cause us to speak negative, hurting critical words to others?
Week 3 – February 8: How can we gain victory over our tongues and grow as people of praise, thanksgiving and encouragement to give grace to all who hear us?
Week 4 – February 15: What are the specific words that we can speak to the heart of people that will lift them up and not tear them down.
Week 5 – February 22: How can we develop a life plan to grow in grace and encouragement?
Throughout the month I will be encouraging the Life Group participants to make The 30- Day Words of Love Commitment. The commitment is very simple: I promise over the next 30 days to guard my mouth will all diligence and to only speak words of love and encouragement to others. Though it is easy to say these words, it is an incredibly difficult commitment to keep. This 30-day experiment will open up our eyes to the harsh and negative words we often speak to others, our loved ones, and even to ourselves. Also, this 30-day experiment will show us our desperate need to daily ask God for his help to speak words of love, grace and mercy to others each and every day.
Join us Wednesday nights at 6 PM in the Upper Room for a life changing Life Group!!
In His Love,
