In today’s society, the term “bitch” has become an affectionate phrase among “friends.” I don’t know about you, but a true friend will not call you a bitch. In fact, when I am not religious or depending on the Holy Spirit to keep my behavior in check, I would smack you into next year for calling me a bitch. For you just called me a horny, aggressive, spiteful, bitter, rude, intrusive, domineering, vulgar dog that worships a pagan god. Yep! Look up the definition in a dictionary. That is what you or anyone who uses the term bitch (“affectionately” or not) is saying to them and speaking into their life.
Most folks repeat phrases, terms, and other words due to its popularity. An example would be “have a good one.” How many times during the day has someone told you to “have a good one” after a service or in passing? Have a good what? Have a good jump off a bridge, have a good suicide, or have a good murder? Okay, I know a person may be saying, “Have a good day,” so I would respond with “you have a good day too.” Okay, why can’t a person just say, “Have a good day?” Why can’t people say what they actually mean? Have we become such a lazy society that we are no longer conscious of the words that we speak?
When a person affectionately cares for you, he or she will ALWAYS speak good things into your life. The truth of the matter is that words have meaning—they have life or death consequences. What are the consequences of the words you use? We are made in the image of God our maker, Lord our ruler, and Savior our redeemer. Our God is wonderful and we are made of Him. Everything about us is about Him. We are beautifully made by Him for Him. Therefore, the term “bitch” or any useless word or phrase is OUT-OF-ORDER!
A Christian or not, YOU are wonderfully made by God. Because of this, each one of us has the same ability—the same power to speak life or death into reality. God created each one and the entire world with words. God just spoke it “LET THERE BE” and it was.
Therefore, the words you speak have power behind them, so you must be careful and choose words wisely when speaking to others for you are speaking life or death to them. This is why I hate when people use profanity as their normal way to communicate to others. He or she does not realize that he or she is actually cursing and speaking death unto them self. Yes! By your own words, you are speaking curses and death to yourself when you use profanity, offensive terms, and phrases. I do not care how hip or cool the words may sound. You must use your intelligence or at least pretend to be intelligent when speaking.
I’ll give you a few seconds to think about it. Think about your everyday language. Think about the words and phrases you speak regularly. Are you finished? Okay, what are the results of the words you speak? Is it life or is it death? How many times do you think you are just having a bad day? Could the reason be because of what you spoke into your life that day?
Do you speak life to your child, husband, wife, relative, loved one, or friend? What words have you spoken into their lives? Do you belittle them by your words? Do you use profanity when speaking to them?
Any word that does not encourage, motivate, or celebrate is a word of destruction or death. So, the next time your “friend” calls you a bitch, correct him or her with kindness. Remind him or her to only speak words and phrases that are life-giving. Do not just speak words for popularity’s sake, and do not allow anyone else to speak negatively to you.
There is such a thing as reaping what you have sowed. The words that you sow will come back with a heavy harvest. What kind of harvest would you like to reap?
