Speak
Speak up.
Speak out.
Speak louder.

God gave us one mouth and two ears.
A good reminder to do less talking and more listening.

But when we do speak,
it should be something of substance.

I’ve been thinking about speech.
A lot.
The words we use.
The harm we do.
The pain we cause.

May the words of my mouth,
O God,
always be acceptable to you.

All of my words.
