Lipstick is the one makeup I really would do not want to go anywhere, without!! If a tornado warning is issued for my county in Oklahoma, I brush my hair, my teeth & put on some lipstick or lipgloss. Heaven forbid my house blow away & I get interviewed on the evening news without my lips!!!
Do you understand my concern? My obsession? Is there one type of make up you would never ever want to be seen in public without?
Proverbs 16:21b reads "pleasant words promote instruction."
Which made me think, " Am I as concerned about the pleasantness of the words I am saying as I am about how my lips look?"
If I am honest the answer is not always. How crazy is that! I want my lips to be "pretty" but I am not as concerned about the words that I am speaking to friends & family that they are, well "pretty".
I am praying that God will use my obsession(um some may call it that). With my lipstick/lipgloss and remind me to use it as a nudge to check the pleasantness of my words.
How have your words been lately? Is there a time of day you need to check your words more often, like I check my lipstick after I eat?
Well this post had been food for thought.
Hope you all have a great Friday!!
