October is pastor appreciation month. I encourage you to practice this in your church.
However, I want to carry this principle much deeper. I would like for you to consider the power of the affirming word.
Words have the power to bless or curse. James said “Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so.”( James 3:10) James was not advocating both blessing and cursing. He was instructing us in proper use of the tongue.
