Think Before You Speak

Words tear many down…
so think before you speak.
Will they be good or uplifting…
or is it destruction they’ll reap.
For words are powerful…
causing damage to many hearts…
as they stab and wound…
and tear many apart.
So think about these words…
before they are spoken…
will they inspire or refresh…
or lead more to be broken?
So be careful what you say…
and think before you start…
for when abusive words are spoken…
it leads to a broken heart.

  1. I totally agree. No matter who you are words hurt….I had a situation this weekend where something hurtful was said to me. I think I am a strong Christian but the words spoken by one of my closest friends really hurt. A day later I find myself since chewing over the words spoken to me. Let us learn to be wise with our words. Why would you say something if you know that you know it will not benefit the other person. If it doesn’t build or motivate or inspire or encourage the other person then it’s wise to be quiet. Our words can hurt and destroy anyone and I mean anyone! I really identified with what you wrote…. 🙂

    • Thanks Rolain. I am so glad that you agree. Words can be destructive and wound more people than society realizes. Praise God that He sees the wounds and heals us through His redemptive Blood, God bless you!
