Words can Hurt

People can be cruel by the things they say. Especially if they turn on you when you believe you have just done something very special for them. Its not always what we say but how we say it. Thinking before the words burst forth, should be considered.  No wonder someone once said, God gave us two eyes to see, two ears to listen and one mouth to speak.
My wonderful sister Janiece has a note attached to her fridge. "If its not nice, don't say it."
Which reminds me of the fruits of the spirit.
Galations 5: 22-23.
But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such, there is no law.
Beautiful isn't it.......

  1. Words can cut to the quick and yet, make up for a lifetime of hurt. So many times I remember those spoken by my veterinarian friend, "You can do it, you'll make it into medical school, I believe in you." Her faith in me gave birth to faith in myself and God used so richly.
