What we say and how we say it can nurture and build others up mentally and physically... or can cause emotional and physical damage. Whoever said “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me” is a liar!
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.”
Proverbs 18:21 ESV
All of us have felt the sting of harsh words - when you take them to heart, they can actually make your body sick and cause lifelong emotional pain.
So speak words that build up rather than tear down. Speak words of life, not death. Speak words of honey, not vinegar. God told us to build each other up, not tear each other down. #BEthechurch #wearechristtooneanother #theywillknowusbyourlove #powerofthetongue #speaklife #wordslikehoney #loveoneanother #onespiritonechurch #shalom #dailydevotional
