Read Proverbs 18:14 (https://bit.ly/2AMl2yL)
Remember that childhood saying you would rattle off to the classroom bully, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me!” Wow, did we have it wrong! It’s quite the opposite, isn’t it? We can most times heal very easily and quickly from a broken bone or illness. But when we are hurt emotionally, when unkind, unfair and unnecessary words are spewed at us, we may never heal from them. Even after years have gone by, those words can still make their way back into our thoughts. They can seep into very vulnerable and deep places of our soul where self-love and self-respect should be. Only the cleansing love of our amazing God can reach in that deep to heal us. Remember this the next time you lose your temper, find yourself gossiping or simply giving your opinion: Words can make or break someone. You have that power.
