“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O God.” (Psalm 19:14)
It is so easy to fire off an email or Facebook update or Twitter tweet or text message without thinking much about it.
What would happen if you challenge yourself to be mindful of your words in these contexts. Take a deep breath before you respond to anything and make space in your heart before you start typing. Notice how this mindfulness affects your sense of connection to others.
Pray Creator God,
you have given us guidelines
of how we can be in community together.
Help us to follow your loving laws,
praise you more faithfully
and live more justly,
so we might be more faithful disciples
living in a deeper relationship with you.
