The great and mighty things that God wants to show you
are often the answers to prayers that you have prayed.
Keep on asking,
keep on seeking,
keep on knocking—
answers will come,
doors will be opened,
promises will be fulfilled.
Call unto me, and I will answer thee,
and show thee great and mighty things,
which thou knowest not.
Jeremiah 33:3 KJV
~ Roy Lessin
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but
only what is helpful for building others up according to their
needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
— Ephesians 4:29
The goal in Christian communication is not just clarity. Neither
is the goal just to be understood. The goal is not even just to be
truthful. The goal is to be appropriate, encouraging, and uplifting
to others based on the needs of that other person.
Tender Shepherd, give me a heart that is pure so that my words
may be pure. Give me a heart that is kind so that my words may be
kind. Give me a heart that is full of joy and encouragement so that
I may share these with those you bring to my path and with whom I
share conversation. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
