Railbird (Ecclesiastes 5:2)

Good morning all,
The word of the day is “railbird.”  It seems that everyone has an opinion about stuff. When you do anything in life there will be others that think that they know what is best for you and the situation. And, even though they may be right (and much of the time wrong) it is our responsibility to God to be the kind of people that look to him for the best way to do life, and make decisions based on how we would like to be perceived by others.  And in the same way, we must be careful of what we say and do.

“Be not rash with your mouth, nor let your heart be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven and you are on earth. Therefore let your words be few.” ~Ecc. 5:2

My question is: what are the words that come out of your mouth?  Kevin always told me that it is very true that the things that one says is a reflection of the heart. I don’t think that’s anything new for anyone to hear.  My prayer is that when people hear you speak, and look at your actions, that they see a reflection of the kind of person that you would like to be.  Don’t be a railbird, just criticizing peeps for what you might think is a good reason, but instead be careful with your words. Remember that people judge you on that kind of stuff, both good and bad.  Use today as a way to honor God in the way that you live your life.

Praying for you,
