AVOID LAZY PHRASES. Responses such as “I don’t care,” “It doesn’t matter,” or “Whatever” are Devaluing to you and the people you are saying them to. It sends the message that you aren’t worth the risk of making a decision or having an opinion. Passive Speech trains you to be a Victim in life, letting others decide what you like or want. It feeds depression and anxiety, since it creates a sense of hopelessness and lack of control in your life. Even God commanded us to “be either hot or cold,” because He knew that no decision is really a passive choice for the enemy. Make a point to Be Decisive. Voice your feelings and opinions, pick a side and vote in elections. Risk being wrong. You can’t drive a car in neutral.
Revelation 3:16 ESV: So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.
