Devotions from Judy’s heart
Words are so important and have the power to build up or tear down. We have all said things we wish we could take back but it is too late. I’m sure we have all received words that have wounded us too.  In Matt. 12 it says that we will have to give account for every careless word we speak. With the grandkids here we are doing something to help us with our words. I gave each of us 10 pennies and if someone hears us say a negative thing about someone else they get to take a penny away.  Before they leave to go home, whoever has the most pennies will get a prize. So far a few pennies have been exchanged and I’m sure more will in the future. In Prov. 16:24, it says that “Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.”  May we have up-building words for others that will bring health and healing to our souls.
