Week 2: Monday

Check out this week's video....

As you watch consider the following notes:

Some people are verbal "gap fillers".  When there is a break in the conversation, you can count on them to fill the slight gap of silence.

We sometimes suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out).  We just have to say something! If we suffer from FOMO and just have to keep talking to add our two cents' worth, saying, "But...but...but," we need to learn to "Shut the But"--Shut it down!

Talking to God before we talk to others will allow the Holy Spirit to empower us to live life in a godly manner, processing as we pray.  Then we are better able to break the habit of sinning with our mouths.

The Bible is full of examples of men and women who spoke filled with the Holy Spirit, some even when they were in a tight spot.  When the did, Scripture never records them then sinning in what they said.

  1. Don't speak too much resonates with me. As a person who speaks to "bounce ideas" off of people, I need to remember that quantity is not always quality.
