Despite the old schoolyard chant, “Sticks and stones can break my bones,
but names will never hurt me!”, Speech is powerful for good or for harm.
And speech is very personal for God!
Every human being we encounter is a hand-crafted original,
shaped in his/her mother’s womb by a loving God.
How we treat others matters to God!
In this message we will look at the old ways that need to be thrown off,
the attitudes in our minds that will need to be made new and
the new ways we need to put on in order to shine like Jesus in this dark world.
God says, “Reckless words pierce like a sword,
but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”
Our speech is a powerful tool. May we place this tool
in God’s hands for His use. We can change lives
with the words we speak.
