Words can bring death or life!
You know the saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.” I get the point behind the phrase. But it’s dead wrong. The words I speak as a husband, dad, friend, son, brother, uncle, co-worker, neighbor…they carry immense power.
Today, I’m choosing to speak words of life over death. Words like:
I’m proud of you
I love you
Care to join me? What words are you adding to your vocabulary today?
I think we’ll find our own attitudes a little brighter if we choose to allow life to pour out of our mouths instead of words that hurt, mock, and destroy. Let’s choose to be life-givers with the words we say today.
We just might find the world a little bit brighter, a little bit more joyful, a little more full of life.
