We’re all familiar with the saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” However, nothing could be further from the truth. Words can hurt and cause damage. The good news is that they can heal and bring life too!
James 3:5-6 (MSG) says, “A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything—or destroy it! It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire. A careless or wrongly placed word out of your mouth can do that. By our speech we can ruin the world, turn harmony to chaos, throw mud on a reputation, send the whole world up in smoke and go up in smoke with it….”
Words are powerful.
Life and death are in the power of the tongue. (Prov. 18:21 ) Take time today to speak life over yourself, your family, and your situation.
