TODAY’S HOT TOPIC: Are You Careful About the Words You Use?
Written by T.M. Gaouette | December 12, 2012
Ladies, did you know that words have power? They can build a person up or they can knock them down! Do you select your words carefully when talking to your family and friends? This question goes beyond cussing.
Do you speak kindly or with diplomacy, even if you’re disagreeing with someone? Or do you often leave conversations wishing you hadn’t said some of the things you did?
Certainly, when we speak negatively to someone, we can’t help but feel bad about it. We get over it, right? But the words have still taken effect. They’re remembered. And in so many cases, they’re never forgotten.
Following is a beautiful song called “Words” by Hawk Nelson, a Christian rock band. It features Bart Millard of MercyMe, and it’s Hawk Nelson’s first single from their upcoming album. The official video hasn’t been released yet, so I posted the lyric video so you can read the words! The message is something we all need to take to heart.
Have you caught yourself regretting something you’ve said to someone else?
Unfortunately, regret can’t fix hurtful words, but an apology helps. If you can say sorry, you should. And if you can saturate the past negative words with the positive, then start working on it. But most importantly, do your best to always select your words carefully in the future!
Ladies, have you hurt someone with your words? Have you been hurt by words?
