Last Fall, Danny and I talked with our two oldest kids (5th and 3rd grade) about waking up early and having a devotion time with us before school. We wanted to help them develop a habit of putting God first in their life and create opportunities for conversations about spiritual things.
We want to believe words don’t carry the weight they do. It’s easier to let ourselves off the hook for the impact we have on other people. The reality is that words have creative power, able to build or destroy. They give hope, crush dreams, instill safety, release fear, stir faith, or create pain. There is unlimited potential in our mouth for either good or evil.
