A recent Family Circus cartoon shows Dolly and her little brother playing in the snow on a cold day. The caption says, “look Dolly, you can see my words.” While we cannot “see” words, we can certainly see the results they bring. Today let’s do a reality check. Have our words brought kindness, appreciation, encouragement? Or have we been indulging in gossip, derogatory remarks or hurtful sarcasm. The Bible says, “out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornication, thefts, false witness, blasphemies…” A very wise person once said, “We are not what we think we are, but what we think– we are.” If our words could be frozen in time for all to see, what would they look like? When God looks into our hearts, what does He see?
