With modern technology our words are flying around in space, perhaps forever. Words sent in an email,posted on a blog, or said in person may be held against us or credited to us forever. A witty retort or cut posted on a blog, message board or in an email may not seem so appropriate the next next year, the next day or even in the next moment. Google your name from time to time and you will find interesting snippets that you may have forgotten about.
Words are powerful. After all, God SPOKE the world into being! Of course our words are not anything in comparison with His, but powerful, nonthe less. The old addage "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me" is not completely true. Words injure, words hurt and words linger in the memory forever.
Use your words to enrich, empower, encourage and inspire. Let's use our words to uplift .
When faced with the decision to be witty or kind, be kind.
God gave me a mouth with which to speak And a mind to form the words I wish to say
It is my desire to keep those words kind And not to injure others in any way.
