This is something especially relevant to us girls. Watch yourself this week and listen to what comes out of your mouth, you may be shocked. We spend so much time dressing up to be pretty, some of us won’t dare leave home without our make-up on. But have you ever considered wearing a clean mouth as a part of our dressing up? Gossip for example is one of the ugliest things a girl can “wear”. I have seen us girls absolutely rip another girl to shreds in a conversation and most of the time we do it just because we are insecure aboutour self and make our self feel better at their expense.“Death and life are in the power of the tongue” – Proverbs 18:21
We can do serious harm to someone just by what slides off of our tongue. That is so ugly and no amount of make-up or pretty clothes can cover the ugliness that we wear when we do this. I am sure we have all done this at some point in our life but let’s really think about this when we get dressed to meet up with people this week. Make a decision to dress beautifully on the inside and out, when you put on your perfume or a pretty dress also put on a nice clean mouth that won’t gossip or say mean things. If your chit chat is not going to build a person up rather chit chat about something else. Make sure the absent are always safe around you.
Just a thought, hope it helps us all be more beautiful and princess-like this week.
