“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never harm me.” Baloney. Don’t believe it for a second. Words are powerful: they can build up, and all too often they can tear down!
In this video, Pastor Cy continues the sermon series on “Wisdom in Turbulent Times.” He uses Proverbs 18:20-21; 12:25; 14:25; 15:1,18 and 23 to reflect on how our use of words can hurt or help ourselves, those around us and our relationships.
Words are powerful: God spoke and created everything! We can choose to destroy with speech, or we can choose to speak life through words that are kind, truthful, gentle, calming, apt and timely.
