Spoken Words

Spoken words... they can bless, encourage, bring joy, praise, show love, kindness and build up. Or they can curse, bring condemnation, show hatred, kill and tear down. Such power you have in your spoken words. I’ve heard it takes seven positive words to counteract one negative comment. The old saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never harm me,” is not true. They actually can break a heart to the point of no return, if Jesus isn’t allowed to heal that heart.

Funny how you remember the bad words spoken over you more than the good ones. It shouldn’t be that way. The enemy is relentless at whispering lies into your ear, but he also reminds you of all the negative words spoken over you. He replays the scene in your mind thousands of times, but this is where you must stop and give all those hurts to Jesus.

I encourage you today to speak life into every person, especially your family and children, but also into every conversation. Make it a point to always build up, not tear down. An encouraging word goes a long way. It matters. Be the difference!

Scripture: Proverbs 18:21, Proverbs 15:4, Isaiah 54:17, Matthew 12:36
