Tuesday's Thought

"Well ordered words are as a honeycomb: sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." Prov. 16:24


God tells us often, in the Bible, about choosing our words carefully. Words determine if we are full of Prudence and Wisdom or fools in hast. I sometimes tend to be the later, no, most of the time. This is something I work on daily. Stop...think and carefully choose the words we want to say. "He that keepeth his mouth and his tongue, keepeth his soul from distress." Prov 21:23. How many times have you spoken up to quickly and winced, wishing you could take it back? The old saying "sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me" is false! Words cut to the soul. From our children to our spouses and friends, they all deserve to be treated as we would want to be treated. With kind, thoughtful words.


Gods peace,

Dee

OUCH! So true. There is power in our words, and we truly need to be careful about what we say. Life and death are in the power of the tongue.
