Poor Posture?

I hope you can zoom in to read the cartoon better.  The mother pictured here believes she is being a good mother and giving her son good advice but is she?   Our negative attitude and critical spirit as wives and mothers most certainly does make for poor posture in our loved one. 

The words we choose to speak to our children and to our husbands are very important.  Are we building them up or tearing them down?  Do they grow from our words of advice or do they feel condemned?  Are they better individuals for our words or worse?

Listen today to the words you speak to your husband and your children.  Choose your words carefully so your loved ones can stand tall in life.

So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.
1 Thessalonians 5:11

Think of ways to encourage one another to outbursts of love and good deeds.
Hebrews 10:24

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, 
O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
Psalm 19:14
