We women can talk your ear off. God has given us a fountain of words that almost never run dry, and I think part of the reason is so we can use them to build men up.
Even if a man isn’t walking yet in His God-given role of leadership, that is no excuse for us women to talk down to them. The words of a woman are powerful: they can be used like mortar, helping build up a man brick by brick, or like a sledge-hammer, tearing him down floor by floor.
A gentle and quiet spirit is beautiful. A man will fall in love with a counterfeit woman of God who falsely flatters to get hers, or a truly godly woman who encourages and sees him as Christ does.
What kind of woman will you be to the men around you? Will you be like Jezebel, or Esther? Job’s wife, or Ruth?
Decide today you’re gonna use that mouth of yours for good and not evil, to build up, not tear down, to strengthen, not weaken, to heal, not wound.
If you’re an encourager, your future (or current) husband will be able to say, “I have found a good thing and have obtained favor with the Lord.”
