Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing. Prov 12:18. There are power in your words to hurt or to heal. Your words can change the atmosphere to bring peace and calm in a difficult situation, or to stir up even more strife by throwing fuel onto a fire. People who are sarcastic or cutting can be quite hurtful without even realising it. Often these remarks reflect selfish observations without any consideration for others. We must be like the wise person who is sensitive to others and thinks before he speaks. We always have the option to speak words of encouragement into someone’s life to bring healing and to build them up. In this way the love of God will flow from your life to make a difference. Praise God today that He has given us the ability to speak words of life, hope and healing into the lives of others that will not only bless others, but us as well.
