Proverbs 12:18 (VOICE) Thoughtless words cut deeply like a thrusting sword, but the speech of the wise is a healing balm.
Beloved, be wise of speech, choosing each word with intentionality. Speak from an understanding that each word is a seed you are depositing – it will bring forth either life or death. So be deliberate what harvest you hope to reap, and sow accordingly.
Resist the urge to surrender to momentary emotions by venting hurtful words that may maim for years to come. Instead let hard words be chosen with care that they might break that they can bind, so healing can blossom forth. Speak life, and do so with love. Let your words reflect Me and My heart.
Hosea 6:1 (ESV) “Come, let us return to the LORD; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up.
