They say actions speak louder than words… and while that’s true, it’s also true that words pave the way for your actions. When you put something out there with your words, your actions are bound to follow it up. That’s just the way it works, even if we don’t like it.
I told Jaxon that I would come watch something on the computer in a couple of minutes and when I said those words, I “put it out there.”
He held me to it… even though I did not really want to watch a YouTube video of a guy connecting 240 batteries and making a giant spark of electricity between alligator clips.
The moral of this story is, words are powerful. Words charge your life. And words can change your life. Proverbs 18:21 says it very plainly: Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
Be careful how you use them.
