Our words can be just as devastating. And it seems that it’s our children or family or fellow believers who we hurt the most. Idle, angry, hateful words can inflict great harm, for which we will be held accountable (Matthew 12:36-37).
Before hurtful words come pouring out of your mouth, think first – then leave them unsaid. Dave Egner
Use words of kindness, filled with love,
That heal and nourish life
Instead of hurling angry words
Think before you act; think twice before you speak.
