My husband works for a car dealership and his job includes many responsibilities, some of which include going to the police car pound to retrieve a car.

Several years ago, we were quite taken with a TV reality show, which was based upon people retrieving their cars and the antics that often went on in so doing. We were fascinated and wondered if it were put on.

A trip to the pound and a picture speaks a thousand words … My husband shot and sent me the photo, no text was necessary, demonstrating there may have been much reality in the TV show we remembered.

Then came the next text, “Be sure to read the sign on top too.”

It’s slightly blurry but you get the point –
We need reminders of how to speak and use our words.

  • Speak wise and winsome words. “Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone” (Colossians 4:6, NLT).
  • Speak good and helpful words. “Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them” (Ephesians 4:29, NLT).
  • Speak words truthfully. “Then keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies!” (Psalm 34:13, NLT).
  • Speak gentle words. “A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare” (Proverbs 15:1, NLT).

The words we speak and the way we conduct ourselves matters.
Be careful little tongue what you say.

“People may hear your words, but they feel your attitude.”
– John Maxwell
