According to the Collins Co build advanced English dictionary, a word is a single unit of language that can be represented in writing or speech. It is very important to the human life because it aids communication, association, relationship and so on. It is through the words we speak that people access us. The universe was created with words and every other thing in it except man. The words we speak everyday goes a great deal to shape our destiny.
Words are powerful, for in the beginning, God created the world with his words. As representatives of God on earth, whatever we utter comes to pass. Having known this, how can we stay positive in our speech? It starts from the heart, the Savior admonished us to guard our hearts jealously that it is not what goes into us that defiles us rather it is what comes out of our mouth because out of the abundant of the heart the mouth speaks.
If we’re to stay positive in our words, we should think positively, study the word of God, imagine positive things and act positively. Regardless of the situation you may find yourself, do not be negative and don’t speak negative words. You say; what if I do? I am not trying to scare you but the truth is that the negative word you speak will come to pass. So beware.
Another thing is the kind of people you mingle with. There is a saying that; ‘evil communication corrupts good manners’. The kind of people you move with, places you go and things you see and listen to affects the message that will be sent to your mind. It is those pictures or thoughts you have in your mind that will determine how you talk and act. So like the admonition of Paul, I’ll say if there is anything positive, good and edifying, think and act on these
