As we enter advent we may notice that speech plays a significant role in the Christmas story. There’s no shortage of words and phrases about Jesus and what God will do through him. There’s plenty of words of encouragement between people, songs of praise, words of hope and in the middle of all that someone whose voice is shut up by God for a lack of faith! Words are powerful in the bible as are our use of words. God’s words are synonymous with his actions and our words can set a forest on fire. Recently our Ignite youth group did a session on speech and this tool for checking up on our own speech is good for both young and old!
