Why are words so powerful? In Proverbs 12:18, The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. Many times our words get us in trouble. Our speech should honor and glorify the Lord. We should speak words of healing and encouragement not discouragement and despair. Just remember it is hard to retrieve words once they have been spoken.
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
