Galatians 6:7New King James Version (NKJV) Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
Do you think that only your intentional words are important? To your Spouse, your children? Or even yourself? Might seem like a funny question but think about it. Have you ever said a hurtful thing to your Spouse and apologize even right away and have the word you spoke still wound and defile? We need to remember the law of sowing and reaping as we walk out our lives and not create a jungle of danger by sowing seeds of fear, doubt and hurt, but a beautiful garden where peace reigns. Negative and hurtful words can build walls that cause hurt for years. Even a attitude. How many times have we had a attitude towards our children making them feel we don't trust them. We all do these things our encouragement is for all of us to watch our words and our attitudes and get in step with the Holy Spirit. And weather you intended to say what you said or act the way you did the results are the same. Encouraging words that bless have a long lasting result in our lives. God always blesses and wants us to bless and bring a culture of blessing to our families! Remember the 103 Psalm where David is blessing the Lord for all His mercies. As we bless the Lord and those blessings will come back to us and help us to build that garden of peace.
A Psalm of David.
