to have conversation that edifies one another.
probably something i say a lot but never really follow through on. as our entire church has decided to take a week long vow to make our words reflect what we believe, i find myself being quiet a lot. before we made this vow, our pastor made a small joke about how the women may find that they have nothing left to say. i chuckled along with the other women in the congregation, but now… its doesn’t seem humorous in the slightest.
how many things do i say a day that are slanderous or discouraging to another, whether it be directly or indirectly? whether it be joking or non-joking? how many things do i say a day that have MEANING? definitely not much.
