I've been reading through Job VERY S...L...O...W...L...Y. Here and there, now and then....
The other day at the gym, I picked up where I left off the last time. Chapter 26. Interesting chapter. In verse 4, Job asks one of his miserable comforters a probing question.....
4 To whom have you spoken these words, and whose spirit has spoken through you?
To whom have you spoken and whose spirit is speaking?
A good question to ask ourselves, often and earnestly, in our day to day communications. When we are talking to our kids, our spouses, our coworkers....ourselves....are we speaking with a namaste spirit? The christ in me recognizes the christ in you.
Or do we direct our comments, observations, suggestions.....demands.....to adam (the carnal man/the egoic mind/outer man/old man).
The power of life and death is in the tongue.....indeed it is.
