“Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing.” Proverbs 12:18 NLT
I want to remind you that your words hold power.
They set the tone of the conversation.
They communicate your heart.
They can encourage and lift up or they can destroy trust, discourage, and complicate the entire situation.
Before you speak, ask yourself if your words are going to help the situation or hurt it?
When in doubt, don’t say anything at all.
Spend your time speaking the words you want to say and applying self-control to the ones you don’t.
My friend, 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.
