Doctrines & Morals

Proverbs 30:6; "Do not add to his words, or else he will rebuke you, and you will be found a liar."

Words are sacred. We should always say what we mean and mean what we say and make sure it all glorifies God or honors his kingdom or at least shows respect for his ways. Any other way of speaking is sacrilegious. Our words must show to people our character. We must be men and women of our words. They must build up and not destroy. 
This is the lesson that today's first reading is teaching us. When we speak as if we know the truth while breaking the commands of God's Word, we destroy the sanctity of our words; we are liars. Every unholy word denies God. They prove a lack of love for him. They withhold his love from the people who hear us. Sacred words are powerful enough to conquer demons and cure diseases, as evidenced in the Gospel reading. 
May God grant us the grace to learn how to harness the power of words and may God's word be a lamp to direct us always. Amen.
Good morning and do have a wonderful day. God loves you.
