Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. Mother Teresa
The weight and power of words has been a constant theme with me lately. Just a few words can have a HUGE impact. They can build up, or they can tear down. And the positive or negative energy they emit can have such a ripple effect. It’s kind of funny how they say that actions speak louder than words, yet words can be SO powerful.
Anyway… I picked up some books on writing today, and one of my focuses is learning to say more, with fewer words… and with much thought about how those words will impact others.
I think that’s a pretty positive plan.
A bit in the mouth of a horse controls the whole horse. A small rudder on a huge ship in the hands of a skilled captain sets a course in the face of the strongest winds. A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything—or destroy it! James 3:3-5 MSG
