“Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing.”
Proverbs 12:18 NLT
All words hold power.
They set the tone, communicate vision, encourage and lift up or they destroy trust, discourage and convolute the situation. It is usually the words we plan that help people and the ones we don’t plan that hurt them. 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.
When in doubt, don’t say anything at all.
Spend your time planning the words you want to say and applying self-control to the ones you don’t.
May your words bring healing to those who desperately need it today and empower those around you to be courageous in pursuing the potential God has put in them.
