We live in a world of words. Every day we speak, hear, write and type words. We work, live and love with words. 

Proverbs 18:21 says: “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” We have heard of people’s stories whose lives were driven either for better or worse because of the words spoken to them by their loved ones in the past. 

Do we use your words to hurt and hinder or help and heal? The noblest use of words is to encourage, strengthen and correct.

Let’s choose and use words wisely because people around us are facing different battles daily. Thus, it’s a must that we learn to communicate well.

William James observed: “The greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.” I say “The greatest use of words is on something that will outlast life.”

  1. That was the Tower of Babel series of verses… I was trying to click the link to read it again and voila! With or without sopastrike in Riyadh, they still continue blocking the sites of Christian effects.

    1. @ Janis – Yes, Tower of Babel. You’re absolutely right!🙂

      About that number of words women speak per day, I tried searching for facts online while drafting this and there are articles that say it remains to be just another “urban legend.”😉
