Sticks and Stones ( by Carley Evans )

Bet you’ve heard this one — “Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words can never hurt you.” Believe that?

I don’t. I bet you don’t either.

I am someone who loves the written word — the way it looks on the page or Kindle or iPhone or smart phone or iPad or PC or Mac. No matter its location, the written word looks great! I am someone who loves the spoken word — the way it hangs in the space between you and me.

As a weapon, none better exists than the word. As a healing tool, none better exists than the Word of God.

Sticks and stones may break my bones. And yes, words may wound my soul; but God’s Word makes me whole.

    Carley, I love this. Is it alright if I post it over at Christian Blessings? I think you’ve hit on an age-old problem that can never be revisited enough. As James said, we must learn the powerful influence of the tongue (even written)… every word that proceeds out of the mouth of man (that’s playing on words) does one of two things… builds up or tears down. Thank you and God bless.

      I’d be honored to have this posted at CHRISTIAN BLESSINGS —
      And, of course as usual, I find my own words convicting in that I have — at times — a critical tongue. God is wonderful to forgive, isn’t He?
      God bless, M.T.
      Carley
