Words…Can Hurt?

The tongue is a very powerful weapon.It says in Proverbs 18:21(NLT) The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.

You can build someone up or tear them down  by the words we say.The words we say can really hurt someone. You know the saying “Sticks And Stones May Break My Bones But Words Can Never Hurt Me“. That is a complete lie! Ask anybody that has been hurt by what someone said. They would have wanted the person hit them than to have said the things they did. Words are planted in us. Negative or hurtful words stay and linger with us, they cause more damage. Then, every time  the words come back to remembrance, it causes a new deeper pain/wound. We should only speak the truth. Also, only speak things that will glorify God.

Ephesians 4:29-32 (NKJV)

29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.

30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

31 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.

32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you.







I have talked to people who are new in Christ and still have trouble cussing. They asked if I knew a good way or how did I stop cussing. I told them to every time a cuss word comes to mind replace it with something good like, Praise God, I love Jesus, Thank you Jesus, Hallelujah, or other good things,etc. Something bad might slip but when it does immediately say something positive, and ask for forgiveness and help from God. Also, read your Bible and pray. It says in, Matthew 15:18 (NLT) But the words you speak come from the heart–that’s what defiles you.

So, cleanse your heart from the filth and replace it will holiness. It says in, Matthew 12:36 (NLT) And I tell you this, that you must give an account on judgment day of every idle word you speak.


So, in ending, please be careful in the words you say. It says in,Proverbs 21:23 (NKJV)Whoever guards his mouth and tongue Keeps his soul from troubles.

Think before you speak. Ask yourself would it hurt you if someone else told you what you are about to say.
