What Will We Say??

7 DAY NEGATIVITY FAST. I CHALLENGE YOU!
Today in class we talked about the power of our words, and how effective words can be, both negatively and postitively.
Proverbs 18:21 says " Death and life are in the power of the tongue."
Words are a vehicle that express what we CHOOSE. Key word being 'choose'. The tongue has the ability to either uplift or destroy.
On the average, a person opens his or her mouth approximately 700 times a day to speak.
Thats a lot of chances to be destructive...or constructive!
"Let our words be acceptable in His sight..."
Thus began the 7 Day Challenge!! NO NEGATIVITY of any kind! For 7 whole entire days. That's 168 hours! or, 10,080 minutes! or, 604,800 seconds! That sounds like a loooooong time to be CHEERY!! But really, how often do we complain, put down, find fault...out of sheer habit? Its so much easier to see the bad than it is the good sometimes.
So I challenge you to spend 7 days refraining from any negative speaking. About ANYTHING! No griping, no complaining, no criticizing (yourself or others) We report back next Sunday to see how it went. Hopefully we will break some old habits....... Your parents are going to LOVE ME for this!!!
Its hard....I'm telling you! Ive already caught myself several times today...Seth and Lane think it means they cant get in trouble for 7 days....because I cant "gripe" at them!!! Ha! Ha!
7 days! WHAT WILL WE SAY???????????

Here's to a happier you,
