THE WORDS WE SPEAK

 

We must be careful of the words we speak…

They reach out much farther than our fist!  -E. L. Ingram   

Your fist can only go as far as my nose…but your words…Oohhhhh…they can go in all directions. They can go forward just like a sword…right into my heart. They can go upward…God can hear them. They can go sideways…depending upon who else was standing by and heard them and were also hurt because of them.

They can go downward and cause turmoil and stress in the very bowels of my being. They can go backward and come forward from my past…to haunt me in my future. Your words and mine…they can be very, very powerful!

 Psalm 139:23-24
Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
