DAY 188: Focus On Encouragement

Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips. ~ Psalm 141: 3

Such a simple prayer for a big time problem, right?  Your mouth can be a weapon that can cut deep, sting your victims, and wage wars.  It can also be the honey that serves hope, encourages others, and signals leadership.  You get to decide what comes from your lips - venom or honey. 

The stronger your heart and relationship with God, the easier to manage your tongue. It takes work.  Be an encourager. Pray for restraint to hold back the venom. Pray for courage to spread the honey.
