18 The words of the reckless puncture like swords,
but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
Words have power. Careful words, thoughtful words have the power to heal, to mend, to build up. Careless and thoughtless words; however, sting the soul and break the heart. They take you to the dark depths of revenge where the tongue finds short-lived pleasure and the spirit must wallow in eternal regret.
Bless us today with patience. Give us control over our tongues. May every word we speak be tempered with Your mercy and Your truth. May we be known for our kindness to others. May it be a testament to Your love.
In the name of Him to is Love, Dear sweet Jesus. Amen.
