Thought for our Week

“Language is a city to the building of which every human being brought a stone.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

5 thoughts on “Thought for our Week”

  1. This thought seems to go along with the quote that Sara presented to us earlier by Geri Weitzman; “Sometimes you’ve got to create what you want to be a part of.” Each ethnic group, nationality, race, religion,etc. has contributed to the global language of mankind. The golden thread that ties it all together is the desire for communication, and brotherly love. Without love, it’s the TOWER OF BABEL.

  2. “Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit…you choose”. This is a quote from Sara’s “Dance of Healing” book. She taught today in church concerning the seriousness of the words we speak, and the repercussions that the words from our mouths can have on our own spiritual, emotional and physical health. So when I read this quote by Emerson, I thought of it in light of this. I saw each word of language as a stone. And each stone can be a building block for a beautiful city or each stone can be used destructively to throw at another person or at ourselves, thus destroying the city for we the church are called to be ‘The city of God.” Which way to use the stones is our choice.

  3. Sara also taught from the Word in 1 Corinthians 10-15 about laying a foundation and building upon it..how our words spoken are also the bricks and they will either build up or destroy and the results will show in our bodies, and also our surroundings and when we face our Lord at the Bema seat..She reminded us that We are the Temple of the Living God..and that if we destroy/defile this temple by our words according to 1 corinthian 17…God will destroy us…(something really to think about)…..dj

  4. Language can appear in many forms. I have often found that communication not spoken in proper timing or not said at all is harmful. Lying is not good and is destructive. Keeping wrong words and ideas to yourself causes worry and illness. Sharing these thoughts can KNOCK OUT the enemy. As I have journeyed in life, the Lord has blessed me with wonderful counsel and with a wonderful friend named Sara who is a woman of great wisdom and the wonderful orchestrator of THE DAILY LILIES.
    I would pray the following scripture daily for each of us at THE DAILY LILY:
    Isa 50:4 The Lord GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to [him that is] weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.

    By praying this we should have a great city, a city of DAILY LILIES that is strong, and that will weather all types of obstacles that we face daily.

  5. Rena, as I lounge in the fluries of snow outside and the warmth of a radiant heat inside drinking chocolate coffee and eating a golden apple, I approach your words with meditations on the power of appropriate words. Communication conjoined with the wisdom and counsel of ‘Sara’ as the orchestrator or The Daily Lilies. I knew I must once again seek and reach for higher wisdom and when I did I recognized the beauty and attraction of obeying God’s Word.

    Proverbs 16:3 “Commit your ‘works’ to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established.” Yes, we put God in charge of this great work “The Daily Lily” and our writings and thoughts right here will be established

    We will accomplish this plan (goal) Proverb 25:11 “A word fitly spoken is like APPLES of GOLD in settings of silver. And 25:12 really gets to the power of widom by showing us how to make a real show with our words. “…a wise friend’s timely reprimand is like a gold ring slipped on your finger.”

    May all of us with our speaking, writing and sharing give many friendship rings and other custom-made pieces of jewelry with the right words at the right time.

    Come along Daily Lilies and ‘knock out’ with our beauty!
