A Prayer for the Words We Speak | Your Daily Prayer
The words," sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me, " couldn't be further from the truth. From being taunted as a child to office gossip, we've all experienced the bruising effects of words on our lives. I’m willing to bet if I were across the table from you right now and asked you to recall memories, you could easily recall a time when someone said something hurtful to you. Because the truth is, whether we acknowledge it or not, our words carry so much weight. Our words can be used to build up or tear down. They can motivate or discourage. They can be a source of an inflicted wound or healing balm for another’s soul.
