Lip Fruit.

“From the fruit of their lips people are filled with good things, and the work of their hands brings them reward.” (Proverbs 12:14)

Do you want to be filled with good things? Speak well and work hard. These two things go hand in hand. Individually they have an effect and together they produce good fruit. God says that as you operate in this way, you will be filled with good things and rewarded.

In business and our personal lives, we impact people. What we say has the power to build up or tear down. That influence on people often determines our success in all realms of life.

We can say good things and do good things. Both are important and part of our witness at work.

Quick Prayer. “Thank you that you value good words and good work.” Amen

Need a Shield?

“Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.” ( Proverbs 30:5)

We all need protection. From time to time we are attacked. We are in a war, expect some flak. So how do we defend ourselves and fight back? Jesus used the word of God as a weapon.

Here we are advised to use it as a shield. If you find yourself in trouble in business, or in your personal life; Speak the word of God. Get to know your armoury, you never know when you will l need it. If you take the time to study the bible, it will become a part of who you are.

Speaking the word was modeled to us by Jesus, how much more do we need that protection?

Quick Prayer. “Protect me when I need a shield Lord. Teach me to use your word.” Amen
