Take Responsibility

In every relationship, in each interaction we have the power to build up or to tear down, to breathe life or to stamp it out. Realize the weight of your words and your silences and take responsibility for every bit of it. I don’t know why God would give us this much power over others, He must really trust us.

Encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11

  1. I really like this quote. Words are powerful. Another filter I use to decide if something should come out of my month is: does this uplift the person and is it filled with grace. This came from a sermon from my pastor and it’s really stuck with me.
