Why your words matter…what a powerful and thought provoking idea.
Immediately it brings to mind memories, both good and bad, of words spoken by me and others.
Crush the spirit
Words that will be remembered for a lifetime.
Words of life
Christ centered words
Other centered words
Words I should never have said
Words I wished I had never heard
Words I regret
Words I wished I had said
Words that can’t be taken back
Words that can never be said
The wrong time
Words that reveal the darkness of soul without Christ
Words that reveal the transforming work of Christ in our lives
Words that honor and glorify God
Words that bring reproach from unbelievers
Even now, 40 years later, I can still remember words I wish I had never heard. Words that impacted me for life. I also remember the words of those who sow life giving, timeless truth from God’s word into my life.
What words will I choose today? I need to remember that words really do matter.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.
It’s another Saturday morn and I wanted to participate in Lisa-Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday writing challenge. Head over to her website “Lisa Jo Baker Tales from a Gypsy Mama”. Be sure to read some of the entries from other writers. I can promise you that you will be blessed.
