Lenten Devotions

“So do not let your good be spoken of as evil. For the kingdom of God is not food and drink but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. The one who thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and has human approval. Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.”
--Romans 14:16-19

Words are essential to our lives. They identify objects, feelings, ideas, and help us articulate what we mean. We have the ability to use or misuse this gift of language. As Paul points out in the letter to the Romans, we should be cautious of how we speak and act towards one another. As you read this article, think about the power words have and which ones make for mutual upbuilding.
