All words are powerful.
They can set the tone, communicate vision, encourage and lift up
They can destroy trust, discourage and convolute the situation.
It is usually the words we plan that do the most good and the ones we don’t plan that do the most damage.
Before you speak, ask yourself if your words are going to help the situation or hurt it?
It’s okay to say you don’t know.
It’s okay to say nothing at all.
It’s okay to choose to be proactive instead of reactive with your words.
When in doubt, don’t say anything at all.
The wise in heart are called discerning, and gracious words promote instruction. (Proverbs 16:21 NIV)
Wise words bring approval, but fools are destroyed by their own words. (Ecclesiastes 10:12 NLT)
You will never regret the words you don’t speak.
Spend your time planing the words you want to say and applying self control to the ones you don’t.
