I don’t know the science of it all, but I’m told that every little baby is technically a female in its mother’s womb up until a certain point when, for some, their brain is washed in a certain chemical/hormone that turns on the “switch” for causing the baby to develop into a boy. In the same way, every time you speak you are washing your inner man with good or bad “chemicals”.
When you speak well of people or your circumstances it sets in motion a whole series of good character-building emotions (both in you and those around you) but when you speak negatively it sets in motion a whole series of bad character-building emotions (both in you and those around you).
In other words, speaking negatively is like a bad case of acid reflux. Why would you do that to yourself?
- The ONE THING for today: Think of how few people you can truly say, “I’ve never heard them say a bad word about anybody.” Starting today – be one of those rare people.
