Sabotage Part 4 - Sticks and Stones
Undermining Behavior: A Harmful Use of Words
“The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.” Proverbs 18:21
Remember Sticks and Stones… Whoever said, “your words will never hurt me”, is a liar. Words are powerful, painful, awful, amazing tools that can help, they can hinder, they can hurt, they can heal.
Your words have the power of life and death. In every single one of your relationships, you're either breathing life into that relationship with your words or you're breathing death into your relationship with your words.
Every word you use has a price tag. With words, wars have been started. With words, murders have been initiated, divorces have been sealed, children’s self esteem has been shattered. Words can end friendships, words splinter families, alright, words shatter reputations, words split churches, words are powerful things.
In fact, words give life, words bring death, and you get to choose.
