The right word spoken at the right time is as beautiful as gold apples in a silver bowl.
The Bible challenges us to be thoughtful and selective about what, when, and how we speak. We’re to be mindful of the creative or destructive power in our words, and we are never to say things that tear-down or hurt others.
Most of us have (at least once) said something that we regret. We’ve used words to hurt ourselves, strangers, and people we love — often choosing to be harmful at the most vulnerable moment.
Instead, be more like Mother Teresa. Insightful and Biblically inspired, the following quote is powerful and soothing enough to transform even the most hardened heart — especially when uttered with love and sincerity.
“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echos are truly endless“
Whenever we turn to God, we know he’ll be patient and compassionate, and perhaps those are qualities we should express whenever we speak to each other.
