Our words hold so much power! We have the power to build and to tear down by the things we say. We have the ability to speak life into people, but we also have the ability to destroy them.
The things we say can be forgiven, but they cannot be taken back and they are extremely difficult, if not impossible, to forget.
When we are angry or hurt, our first instinct is often to lash out with our words. We want to hurt the other person as much as we are hurting. That is not the action of the godly.
May we always remember how much power we wield with our words and use that power to speak life, not death, to those around us.
