Mind Your Words

Bible Verse: Prov 10: 19-20

When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise. The tongue of the righteous is choice silver, but the heart of the wicked is of little value.

JMR's Words Of Wisdom

I’m sure all of us have heard the childhood saying, sticks and stones may break your bones but words can never hurt me. Well, I’m here to put that nonsense to rest. If truth be told words cut and wound us more than any stick or stone. The wounds that words leave sometimes are never forgotten and never heal.
In the Bible there are countless passages that speak about the tongue and words. The tongue can cut just as harsh as a sword. How many countless times have we heard stories of people never getting over something someone close to them said. Whether it was a parent, teacher, friend or spouse.
God wants us to be mindful of the power of the tongue and use our words sparingly. Always speaking in love and never harsh or hateful.
One of my favorite verses is Prov 17:28. Sometimes silence is golden. Mind your words before you unleash them (i.e. think about them) because once uttered they cannot be unspoken.
Remember, it takes a long time to grow old friends…
