How’s Your Thesaurus?

4 May

Let's replace this thesaurus. . .

I downloaded Week One, Me, Myself, & Lies, from Self Talk Soul Talk, a Bible Study by  Jennifer Rothschild. I can’t speak for any more than this week, but it was GOOD.

I love words.  Somehow they speak to me in a special way.

Brood of vipers! How can you speak good things when you are evil? For the mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart.  A good man produces good things from his storeroom of good,  and an evil man produces evil things from his storeroom of evil.  Matthew 12:34,35  HCSB

“ The Greek word for storeroom is thesauros.  The term thesaurus, used to describe a storeroom (collection) of words, is derived from this word.” — Self Talk Soul Talk

So the question I asked myself is, “What state is my thesaurus in?”  Since words make up thoughts, and thoughts bring about emotions, and all of the about lead to our actions—words are important.  This morning, let’s think about what types of words we think and speak most often.  Let’s check out our thesauri and see if some of the words/thoughts need to be replaced by God’s words/thoughts.

. . . with this!
