Words Matter

“A man of knowledge uses words with restraint, and a man of understanding is even-tempered.”  Proverbs 17:27

“. . . Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry . . .” James 1:19

Our words matter. Words harm or heal; invite hate or love, fear or hope.  Our words define us and our relationships.  They direct us to evil or good.  Save us O Lord from the words that hurt and discourage, that inflame and fester.  Help us O Lord to use the words that heal.

 “Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.” Psalm 25:4-5
