The power of words

The Power Of Words

A careless word may kindle strife;
A cruel word may wreck a life.
A bitter word may hate instill;
A brutal word may smite and kill.

A gracious word may smooth the way;
A joyous word may light the day.
A timely word may lessen stress;
A loving word may heal and bless.

– Author unknown

There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health. Proverbs 12:18.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14

And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. Luke 4:22a.

  1. Hi, Barb! This is a nice post for a weekend. Meditative. I wrote about something very similar to this for my next post on Internet Cafe for CWO. I hope you can read it. I think I”m on April 2 or 3. Words are so much more powerful than we ever, ever, know.
