Sometimes we joke when we drop food and pick it up saying, “Five second rule!” We then think it’s okay to eat it. I guess it depends on what the food item is, how bad we want it, and what the floor looks like!
In 1 Samuel 3 verse 19, it says: The Lord was with Samuel as he grew up, and he let none of Samuel’s words fall to the ground.
Do our words fall to the ground and we end up eating them?
Are we truthful in everything we say? Can others rely on the words we use? Are our words good for others to hear?
Something to ponder….
