Proverbs 12:18 The words of the reckless pierce like swords,
but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
Do you recall the story of Jepthah from the book of Judges (Chapter 11) He rashly promised God the if God granted him victory over his enemy that he would offer as a burnt offering the first thing that came out of his tent. Sadly, when his daughter heard him coming she came out fo the tent and greeted him with “timbrels and dancing”. The extreme consequence of a rash promise meant the death of the ennobled young woman and a story that is at once a story of devotion and the consequences of thoughtless speech. Have you ever regretted something that you have said in anger or frustration to someone else? Even as I write these words I am reminded of the many times I have “sounded off” in my frustration at my children, at employees, and at my beloved spouse. The old adage “sticks and stones…” is simply not true. WORDS HURT. The good thing to know here is that words can also heal. Be wise. Choose your words carefully
