After you put your foot in your mouth, don’t expect other people to help you chew on it!
Sometimes the words we speak, are spoken without wisdom attached to them. We can release things out of our mouths that can be destructive to our own lives.
Words are full of power. They can create they can destroy they can build or they can tear down they can cause happiness or they can cause sorrow. They can inflict many times irreversible pain to someone.
Words have destroyed friendships and torn up homes, created chaos, and brought confusion. Words can kill or cause you to be killed.
Words can leave an everlasting impact in someone’s life that’s why is so important that we think before we speak one word out our mouth because words can’t be taken back once they are released into the atmosphere.
The power to create comes from our ability to speak words. Words have led to many arguments because the wrong word can bring a misunderstanding.
Wars have gotten started because someone was offended by a word.
Before we release anything out of our mouth we need to count up the cost of the words that will be spoken. Is what you about to say worth the consequences that may come from the words you about to speak?!
~ Apostle Barbara R. Thomas
