Saturday, I read about using words truly and well. We communicate three different ways:
- Cheap whining.
- Words that change people.
- Words people want to hear.
We had a family reunion. The food was great and I waited all year for a piece of Cousin Ronnie’s Black Raspberry Pie. (I love pie!) He picks the raspberries and makes the pies from scratch. I skipped supper to justify the calories from that one piece of pie! Worth it!
After eating, several went outside to play “Corn Hole.” (Good job, Brenda! Bringing that game extended the reunion for an hour.)
I’m not a fan of outdoor activities. I leisurely ate my pie looking at pictures my sister-in-law brought. A cousin sat down and asked a question. It brought up a painful subject. I found I am fluent in cheap whining. *Sigh* (I repented.)
Jeremiah 15:19, “…Use words truly and well. Don’t stoop to cheap whining. Then, but only then, you’ll speak for Me. Let your words change them. Don’t change your words to suit them.” The Message
After the reunion, we drove through Lake Lacey State Park. I did obey that direction from the Lord.
