People talk A LOT! It makes sense, because it is how we communicate, but sometimes people can talk so much they get themselves into trouble. This can happen to children, and adults too! The Bible has a lot to say about what we say, and how we say it, mostly because the words we speak are a pretty good reflection of our heart. If someone only says ugly words, it is probably true that their heart needs a lot of cleaning up. If someone speaks loving and kind words, we can often trust that they are pure of heart.
God’s Word is the same way. Just like we can trust that a person’s words will tell us a lot about their character, we can trust that God’s words will tell us a lot about His character. Did you know that the Bible promises that God’s words are ALWAYS true?
Proverbs 30:5 tells us that, “Every word of God proves true.”
I think that if every word of God proves to be true, it must mean that His character is one that we can trust to be honest!
Can you think of time when your words didn’t show kindness and love? Can you trust God to always show love and truth in His words?
