Growing up, I have heard the saying, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words would never hurt me”🤷🏾♀️. This is a lie!
Words are powerful and impact peoples lives in a positive and negative way. We live in a time where communication is mainly via social media, email, and texts. People interpret and internalize WORDS. Some people take negative words that are spoken in their life and make drastic decisions by harming themselves or others.
“Wise words satisfy like a good meal; the right words bring satisfaction. The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.” Proverbs 18:20-21 NLT
I always want to encourage and to let everyone around me hear and feel the wisdom in my interactions. I want YOU to know that God loves you so much and that you are special! Only you were made to do what you can do. You are important and valued.
I challenge you to be intentional about what comes out of your mouth because it can never go back inside of you, and affects the receiver.
How can you encourage others with your words today?
