"Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me."
Most of us have probably heard this saying at some point in our lives. Is this statement true or false? This statement is whatever you believe it is. If we believe it is true then words will not have the power to hurt us. They might sting sometimes but we won't allow them to create devastation.
Two weeks ago, I got to speak to a preschool class about the power of our words. We have power to create greatness or destruction and that power comes out of our mouths. We need to ensure that we are using our power for good and not evil.
We must also learn how to filter the words that are spoken to us.
I remember someone saying something negative about the words that I was writing. I allowed those words to latch onto me and like a parasite they sucked the passion from me. What was the point of writing one more word? I threw away so many stories, scripts, and poems during that time. Man, how I regret the power I gave those words.
Take a moment today to think about the words that are shaping your life, hindering your life, inspiring you to grow, holding you back. Words will come at us in all shapes in sizes. Dark evil lies and bright inspiring truths. What words will we believe today? What words will we speak today?
"Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose."
Proverbs 18:21 MSG
