Words of Strength

Sunday, June 23rd, 2019

Ephesians 4:29

“When you talk, do not say harmful things, but say what people need-- words that will help others become stronger.”

Max's Message:

Before you speak, ask: Will what I'm about to say help others become stronger? You have the ability, with your words, to make a person stronger. Your words are to their soul what a vitamin is to their body. If you had food and saw someone starving, would you not give it? Of course you would. Then won't you do the same for their hearts? Your words are food and water! Do not withhold encouragement from the discouraged. Do not keep affirmation from the beaten down! Speak words that make people stronger. Believe in them as God has believed in you.
