Another one of my favorites that I have held onto for many years.  I hope you get something from it!

We Become What We Say

The tongue of the wise makes knowledge attractive, but the mouth of fools blurts out foolishness.  ~ PROVERBS 15:2

Why is the tongue so important?  Because the expression of a thing deepens the impression.  A word uttered becomes a word made flesh – in us.  We become the incarnation of what we express.

If you tell a lie, you become a lie.  The deepest punishment of a lie is to be the one who tells the lie.  That person has to live with someone who cannot trust him.

Now look at what I am saying from the opposite perspective.  When we express good things, positive things, loving things, scriptural things, these things go deeper into us.  Clear expression deepens impression.

A brilliant young physicist tells how he often discusses complex issues relating to physics with his wife who doesn’t know the first thing about the subject.  He told a friend, “I describe in detail what I am doing, and she doesn’t understand a word.  But sometimes when I’m through – I do.”

If it is true – and I believe it is – that we become the incarnation of what we express, then how careful we ought to be to ensure that what we say is guarded and governed by truth, integrity, and kindness.  Always remember: every word you utter becomes flesh – in you.

Daily Prayer

O, God, how awesome is this thought – I become the incarnation of what I express.  Cleanse me deep within so that I may be pure in soul as well as speech.  I would be a clarified person.  Grant it please, dear God.  Amen.
