Word to the Wise | “Words Reveal Our Beliefs”

Have you ever noticed how careless we are with our words?  Sometimes, I think that we do not even know what we are saying.  But, do you know what is the biggest problem with our words?  We do not realize that our words should be an expression of what we really believe. Too often they are spoken without considering the impact they will have in our souls.

Allow me an example.  Most people in the United States have, at one time or another, said these words: “Our Father who art in heaven, hollowed be your name, your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”  Let me ask you a question.  Do you know what you’ve just said?  You have said that you want for God to rule in your life in the same way He rules in heaven.  We say it, but we don’t really mean it, because if we meant it we could not wait to hear from God and follow Him.  The next time you recite the Lord’s Prayer, ask yourself, “How willing am I to actually act upon the words I am about to declare?”
