April 2, 2019 hit the mark

Standard

Good morning, DearHeart.

Last week I noticed that blue chalked brick on my house. And, so I curiously asked about it in the family group text …

Apparently, it’s part of a fitness work out with a weighted ball. Luckily, my sons did not get their throwing abilities from their mother, or we would’ve had some very long and painful baseball seasons. Knowing how I throw things, my thought went to ”wow, who has aim like that?”

And, just as quickly, I thought … “we all do.”

Seriously.

Every day, each of us has such precise aim that I think we would amaze ourselves.

“Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” (Proverbs 12:18 NIV). 

We can hit the mark every time we open our mouths & speak. The question then becomes, are we hitting the mark for good or harm? Do I leave a mark of love?

You see, scripture tells us that our words are either going to pierce or bring healing. That same verse, in other versions, reads:

• “Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing.” (NLT)

• “There is one who speaks like the piercings of a sword, but the tongue of the wise promotes health.” (NKJV)

• “Rash language cuts and maims, but there is healing in the words of the wise.” (MSG)

Our words will either……

cut or heal,

pierce like a sword (ouch!),

or promote healing,

cut & maim,

or heal & be wise.

Today, as I call Christ and His love into my family, my day, my drive, my work, may I be aware of the words I speak, how I speak them & the effect that they will have. Seems to me that perfect aim can be one of our most influential tools.

Wake up.

Speak wisely.

Go.
