I was listening to a song about breathing this morning and God gave me this insight. I thought I would share it with you.
Take a breath, hold it. Let it out.
Now, think about who gave you that breath. Think about what He gave you that breath for. He gave it to you to praise Him! You had it to glorify His name among the nations! To edify others! That breath was not for slander, or for hatred or for being wasted in idle chatter and gossip. Our breath is a gift and not to be wasted.
Now, take another breath. What are you going to do with it?
