Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say – S2E9

In our episode Watch What You are Saying, Lady V and I discussed how important words are. So, several questions come to mind. Such as, when going about your day do you ever consider your words, whether in thought or spoken form? Do you always think before you speak? Can others trust what you say is truthful? Do you honor your word? Moreover, do you say what you mean and mean what you say?

Words Matter for Life – S2-DE8

Lady Vs Weekly Devotional 

The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. 

Proverbs 12:18, NIV 

Devotional 

Have you ever noticed how someone’s words can either cut like a knife or be soothing to the soul? Words carry the power to affect lives for the good or for the bad.  

Without a doubt, our tongue has the power to be used as a weapon, or as a fountain of life. The wrong words spoken can be detrimental, but the right words spoken can bring health and healing. That is why words matter for life! 

So, how are you using the power that you’ve been given in YOUR tongue? We sometimes make the mistake of speaking words without giving thought to the magnitude of its force.
