Words for Good

"In the multitude of words, sin is not lacking, but he who restrains his lips is wise." (Proverbs 10:19 NKJV) The more one talks, the greater the chances of saying something that will either hurt someone, cause one to sin, and or make one look foolish. Humans are always in a huge rush, and that includes having conversations quickly so they can move onto the next activity. By rushing, one doesn't take time to stop and think about what he/she is saying, and therefore editing onesself. Words can build up or they can tear down. They can also confuse, which all of us furries know. All of us need to slow down, take time to think about what we are saying before we say it, and make sure that we are doing our best to build each other up, and not tear each other down, including ourselves....and isn't that what we all want in today's world?? Make our world a better place?! Love, Beau

We're so glad to see your Sunday Sermon! As a school teacher, I agree wholeheartedly about the words. Children can be built up or torn down just by what we say or how we say it. God bless you and your mom.

This sermon is to the point, in that I have been guilty of saying (forgive the expression) "Catty" remarks that have hit someone hard, and left a lasting scar. I also have been, due to my hypersensitivity to my own real or perceived beliefs about myself, shaken to my very core and self-image by things that have been said to me. Words leave Psychic scars, or they can help heal a soul.
This an extremely good lesson, and I thank you for it.
