Our Words: Hurtful or Sweet?

     We have all heard that Golden Rule, given by Jesus Christ in Luke 6:31, "Just as you want others to speak to you, you also speak to them likewise".

     As a child, we all have heard that saying, "sticks & stones will hurt by bones, but words can never hurt me." What a lie! Words can definitely hurt. Ask any kid who has been bullied.

     How we use our words can greatly impact us and those all around us.
Allow the book of Proverbs put it into perspective. ..........

Prov. 16:24 "Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.

Which will you choose? 

"Stick & Stones" or "Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones"?
