The ability to bless others with our mouths is our superpower; it blesses them and us!
Proverbs 18:21 The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
Eating our words is something that we do all the time. We reap what we say, in a manner of speaking. Even our silence communicates something. Two phrases that come to mind are, “Silence gives consent,” and, “The cruelest lies are often told in silence.” Proverbs says,
Proverbs 18:20 From the fruit of his mouth a person’s stomach is filled; with the harvest from his lips he is satisfied.
Jesus blessed Peter:
Matthew 16:17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.
He has given us the great example for how we can be blessed by blessing others:
John 13:14-17 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
As we enter into this Thanksgiving season, may we serve each other with vocal blessings and with acts of appreciation. Ask the LORD for opportunities and then keep on the lookout for them.
