Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. (Ephesians 4:29, NIV)

October 18, 2018

When I was growing up I was probably one of the smallest kids in my class and because of that I was often picked on. Out of this my mom would often say, just remember - “sticks and stones may break your bones but words will never hurt you.”


Well, maybe the words didn’t hurt me physically, but I can tell you that while I don’t remember those who may have hit me in elementary school or jr. high, I do however remember the times when harsh or cruel words were spoken to me.


So I challenge us to think before we speak and when we do let us share only those words that build others up.
