Oh the things we say. How can words be reversed?
“Just kidding” or “I didn’t really mean it” doesn’t stop a word from cutting.
“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” I can picture me saying that on the playground at school. It didn’t really help.
I thought about blessing and curses coming out of the same mouth and how we do it so casually without even noticing. It’s also been a conversation topic with a few friends.
I was going to blog yesterday on this and nope…then God led me to James 3 afterwards so I’m listening.
“With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be.” James 3:9-10
