How do we use words?

How do we use words?

Do we say and write things that encourage others or to prove our point?

Is it better to create division or to promote peace?

Are we even aware that when we speak or when we write, we might offend or hurt another?

Words have power. Your words have power over the people around you.

You can choose to lift up or choose to tear down - all with a single word.

You can proclaim glory or ridicule with the words you choose.

Grace and mercy are more than just words. These attributes should flow through our actions and our words.

Caveat: Just in case you think you've ticked me off and I'm writing this to you, I'm not. Thoughts flowing around in my head, that's all!
