Words can kill. 🔪
Be careful about what comes from your mouth because one hateful sentence from a loved one can cause years of destruction. Cautiously consider what you say because the strength of your character is exhibited in how you treat those closest to you. Let kindness and gentleness be shown in every encounter, but especially in familiar relationships. Do not allow the things you speak to be used to devastate someone else’s self- worth. Instead, always be compassionate and considerate.
“Banish bitterness, rage and anger, shouting and slander, and any and all malicious thoughts—these are poison. Instead, be kind and compassionate. Graciously forgive one another just as God has forgiven you through the Anointed, our Liberating King.”
— Ephesians 4:31-32 (VOICE)
