How do you feel when someone speaks harshly and rashly to you? I bet like me it hurts you, many of us carry such words far into our lives, we simply cannot forget. Hurtful words are so very easy to say but not easily erased, and they can be very damaging too, right words on the other hand make indelible positive impact in the life of anyone.
Do you know you and I could choose to speak good, up building, soothing and encouraging words? We could make up our minds to use our tongues as tools of blessing to everyone we meet. We can train our tongues by working on our hearts to please God and bring healing to our world. We could leave everyone we meet better than we met them because of the joy, encouragement, hope and peace our words will bring them.
What/how do you talk?!
Rash language cuts and maims, but there is healing in the words of the wise. Proverbs 12:18 (MSG)
