Father God of Encouragement,
Thank you for taking the time to show love to your disciples by affirming and encouraging them. Help us remember that our well-aimed words will carry life to the hearts of our children. Teach us to extol their positive characteristics whenever we can and to resist the temptationto use words only for correction. Give us lips that speak grace and that show the heart of your love through the things we say. Amen.
Quoted from Sally Clarkson in “the ministry of Motherhood”
May I always use my words gracefully and mercifully as a mother. I shall guard my tongue, for it is the well spring of life(Proverbs).
