The Power of Words

Are you aware of the power of your words? Watch your words diligently. Words have such great power to bless or to wound. When you speak carelessly or negatively, you damage others as well as yourself. As positive speech patterns replace your negative ones, the increase in your Joy will amaze you.

Be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry.

The power of language to define or wound cannot be denied. All of us know expressions that demean based on race and gender or mental health. Unkind language keeps narrow-minded attitudes alive. Please think before you speak.
