Have a Humble Heart

It’s WORDS WEEK here on GUWG, where we’re examining what God says about communication.

Here’s a graphic depiction of ways to wield words wisely:

We started at the center of the diagram with the notion that we shouldn’t say a thing unless our ♥s are filled with the Spirit. Then we talked about keeping our words FEW.

Today’s topic: HUMBLE WORDS. Here’s what the Bible says:

If you play the fool and exalt yourself, or if you plan evil, clap your hand over your mouth. (Proverbs 30:32)

Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth. (Proverbs 27:2)

Clap your hand over your mouth and keep it there until you ask God to fill your ♥ to overflowing with HUMILITY. Never boast or brag — let others sing your praises.

Or, put another way:

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. (Philippians 2:3)

So, to recap: Be filled with the SPIRIT. Keep your words FEW. And keep ’em HUMBLE.

Tomorrow’s topic: HONEST words.
