There is an old phrase, “sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” It’s a phrase that I remember using in my childhood when other would say mean things to me, but now that I am older and wiser, I have learned that words are extremely powerful (for everything first began with words), and they contribute either in a positive, or negative manner on someone’s mind, as well as their heart. Words build us up, or tear us down. Words can spark a fire in someone, or put one out.
Let your words speak and encourage life into those around you, instead of condescending, gossiping, or mistreating one another. For you never know just what someone is dealing with from within, and how just a little kindness from you, can make a huge impact in someone’s life.
Treat others the same way you wish to be treated. Luke 6:31
