Words to hurt or heal

Each day there are thousands of words spoken by us, and by those around us. Thousands of words, each with different meanings.

How we’re feeling physically or emotionally, what’s going on in our lives, and how tired we are, all affects how we interact with others, what words we use, and the tone we use. That in turn affects how those we interact respond to us, and how we make them feel. i.e. Do we encourage, offers words to heal, or do we say things which can hurt and upset others.

I’m sure we can all think of times when we’ve done the latter, hurt someone, rather than encourage them, by our words.

Personally I pray each day that God will help me find the right words to use in every situation I find myself in, because I know He wants me to be a person who heals rather than hurts. I pray I will continue to trust God for His guidance in every situation, so that I heal and not hurt others by what I say.
