The power of words

prov25.11.001

My daughter and I were talking a few days ago about the power of words. Unfortunately, one unkind word can over-power a dozen kind words. Perhaps that’s why God advised His children in the book of James and other places in the Bible about exercising caution before using the tongue. Today, this extends to the Internet, which makes it far too easy to share something that could cause pain to someone else. Wise words, edifying words, words of truth and kindness–these are the words God calls us to speak.
