The Number One Way to Get Better

“If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.”

– 1 Peter 4:11

The number one way to get better in life is to improve your words. Do you want more from life? Become more! It begins with you becoming choosy and enthusiastic about the words you consume, whether it’s the words you read or the lyrics in the music you listen to. It is also important to become connected to and excited about what you say to people, and what you say to yourself when you look in the mirror. You can improve the quality of your life by improving the words that you say, hear, and think about. Just hear this today!

Take a moment to think about every word that comes into your life. In our technology-focused world with many different devices to protect, we go to great lengths to prevent viruses from being downloaded. Our lives should be no different. “Download” only the good stuff that will make a difference in the quality of your life: Positive, educational,   and loving messages. There is something divine about the power of words. One of the most important and amazing things that make us different from the noble animals of the earth is that we can talk. It’s such a gift, if we use it the right way!

Friend, how would it be if we were able to measure your discipleship based on your words of encouragement? How praiseworthy are the words that are spoken? What kind of faith, hope, and love do you express in your words? Let’s make a greater effort to improve the words we say, hear and think about!


Father, help me to connect and be enthusiastic when I speak with others.


In what ways are you affected by the words you hear?
