I’m not sure who it is that came up with the phrase,”Sticks and stones maybe break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”
Whoever it was, they were wrong. Although we know that words cannot bring physical harm in the way that “sticks and stones” can, we know that there is great power in words to do harm. On the flip side, there is equal power in words to build up.
All month long we have been focusing on reading through 31 Proverbs in 31 days. Come worship with us tomorrow as we continue in our Living Wisely series and talk about, “Heavy Hitters: The Power of Words.”
Grace and Peace
