She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.– Proverbs 31:26
How we speak is very important in our walk with God. We must be very careful in how we address our families, our neighbors, people on our jobs and people in our church or just a stranger. Let our words be kind. A soft word turns turns away wrath but painful words stirs up anger. A wise woman builds her house with positive and uplifting words, but a foolish woman will tear her house down with ugly and negative words. When words come out of our mouths, wise or foolish, they cannot be taken back. So be careful in your speech because God hears us. And one day we will have to give an account as to why we said it. The old saying about sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me is not true. Words will turn into stones and can do a lot of damage for life. Think before you speak!
