Good morning, this is Topher from Washington Church of Christ, bringing you a positive Message Minute.

Do you remember that funny quote from the Disney's 1992 hit movie, Aladdin, when the Genie declares that he has, "Phenomenal cosmic powers … itty-bitty living space"?
While this fantasy thriller of a family tale was entertaining, this scene may have more truth in our lives than we realize.  We are like the genie, we have phenomenal amazing powers too, and they definitely affect our living spaces.  Wise King Solomon put it this way, "By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is overthrown." (Proverbs 11:11)  There, in Proverbs 11, Solomon has  a lot to say about the power of the words that come out of our mouths.  They bring the power to heal or the power to destroy.  They begat rejoicing, or lament.  They reveal a person's ignorance or display great wisdom.  They destroy a neighbor or they deliver you from trouble. 

Let's endeavor to follow the wisdom of James as we try to be intentional stewards of our phenomenal verbal powers today, "Let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger." (from James 1:19)  You'll be glad you did.
