Excuse Me, What Did You Say?

Have you ever thought about the power of your words? It might not seem like a big deal, but it is! How you talk and the words you use can have a massive impact on your relationships with others.


Let's break down some critical Scriptures about how important our words are. Proverbs 12:18 says that "reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing." This means that if we use hurtful words, it can really harm someone. But if we use wise words, it can actually heal and help others.


Another verse from Proverbs 18:21 says, "The tongue has the power of life and death." This means that our words can bring life and positivity or death and negativity. We should always strive to bring life to those around us with our words.


Matthew 12:34-37 talks about how our words reveal the condition of our hearts. This means that the things we say show what we think and feel inside. We should always try to speak the truth in love and with kindness.


In Ephesians 4:15, 25, and 29, we are told to speak truthfully and to speak only what helps build others up. This means we should only say things that will help others and not tear them down.


Finally, Colossians 4:6 tells us to season our speech with Grace. This means we should always aim to be kind and gracious in what we say, even if we are correcting someone.


So, what does this all mean for us? It means we must be mindful of our words and their impact on others. We must speak truthfully and kindly and only say things that will build others up. Even our idle words will be accounted for, so we must be careful with what we say.


Here's an example of how this might look: Let's say you and your friend are hanging out, and they say something that hurts your feelings. Instead of getting angry and lashing out with hurtful words, you could calmly tell them how their comments made you feel and ask them to be more mindful in the future. This way, you speak truthfully and kindly and help build a more robust and healthier relationship with your friend.


Remember, the power of your words is enormous! Use that power to bring life and positivity to those around you.
