Speak Your Peace

Speak your peace.

Usually a person speaks their piece, that is, they say whatever is on their mind—good, bad or otherwise. They are actually speaking what is in their hearts, for Jesus said, “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” (Luke 6:45).

Many people speak their piece, but their words are anything but peaceful, because peace is not in their hearts in abundance. But for those who know the Prince of Peace, and have received the peace of God through Him, we have an opportunity to take His peace wherever we go and speak it to others.

Faithpoint: Your words have the power to bless or to curse, to build up or tear down, to bring peace or generate strife. The choice is yours. Speak peace.
