Okay! To today’s lesson, what does the topic suggest to you? While you are still pondering on that, let’s hear what Michelle has to say:
Women have the power to make or break a man, power to build them up or tear them down. For all you women out there who are interested in some guy who is basically a good man, whose only problem seems to be that he doesn’t have any money, let me tell you a secret. Your words can make the man in your life wealthy. If you encourage him and have confidence in his abilities, boyfriend will start beating his chest like Tarzan and go forth and conquer his world.
Think about how you feel when you hang around people who are always negative. That’s how the man in your life feels when you are constantly raining on his parade or bemoaning your own lot in life. Cut it out, and get positive! “Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone” (Col. 4:6) Salt makes you thirsty: Your conversation should make the man in your life thirsty for more of you. Salt makes things taste good. Your conversation should be the ingredient that makes a bland, unexciting day come alive for him. Salt is a preservative that keeps food from spoiling. Your words should be used as a preservative to build, maintain, and solidify the foundation of your friendship or romance. Salt can also melt snow. Your words should melt his heart and his defences. Salt also has the ability to hold things together.
Don’t buy a guy a gift, be a gift. Men are simply looking for a woman who will help them be a better man. If a shout could bring down the walls of Jericho and by words “Let them be” the world was fashioned, just think what your words can produce in the life of a man.
Personal Note: I’m working on a confession book for ladies. I think that this year I really became exposed to the tremendous power/influence our words can have on our lives. God created the world and everything in it with the word. We can create everything beautiful with our words as well. Start practising now (if you are not yet married), let your words build, strengthen and edify everyone in your life. Don’t be the lady with the rash tongue who is quick to pull others down. Rather, be an oasis- a well of refreshment to everyone God has placed in your life.
