The Whine Flu- Part 1



This weekend I shared a message that was challenging and hopefully encouraging to our church family. This week I want to talk about a very important topic. I'm using the imagery of the whine flu to help us think about our words & our future. God has given every person incredible power through the use of our words. Maybe you aren't where you want to be in life today. The truth is that the words that you've spoken in the past are directly tied to your present & your future. The Bible teaches us that our words are simply the overflow from what is in our hearts. What we say is ultimately what we believe. What you believe is where your faith is established. If you're mouth is full of negativity & complaining, your heart is full of doubt. The Apostle Paul reminds us in PHILIPPIANS 2:14-15 "Do everything without complaining or arguing (WHINING), so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe." Tomorrow I'll be giving you the 4 indicators of whether or not you have the whine flu!
