Daily devotional: Encourage with my words

Scripture
Don't use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.
Ephesians 4:29 NLT

Observation
I was first challenged by vv. 2, 26, and 31 because I am not always gentle, patient, and in full control of my anger, especially with my kids! And then this verse reminded me and challenged me to speak and say things that will be good and helpful not only to my kids but to everyone I come into contact with.

Application
Focus on saying that which is good and helpful, so that my words will be an encouragement to others.

Prayer
Heavenly Father, thank you for challenging me with these verses today, and thank you for providing a great prayer template that I can pray over our team today! Please fill me to overflowing with Your Spirit and enable me to follow Your Word, and thus bring honor to Your name. I love you!
