What’s in a word!

Do you remember that little rhyme we spoke as children, “Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me?” That is not true because words can and do hurt. We can choose to allow negative words to impact us, or we can choose to let them go. We can also speak words of encouragement to others. What a better place this world would be if we all tried to uplift one another. Proverbs 12: 25b says a kind word cheers up. Think of all the people you come in contact with daily. Today someone took the time to say an encouraging word to me, and all the cares of the day melted away by her thoughtfulness. Try it and see!
