I have written how powerful the spoken word is in previous blogs. But it still always amazes me to ‘hear the negative, cunning words come out of peoples mouths on a daily basis. It seems we all run into the negative word games in our interactions with business associates, with family members and friends. I don’t really think they are aware of how ugly they look and sound when they are cutting someone down verbally or making a snide remark. The negativity they are putting out will most definitely come right back to them. I know this principle, but I fear they do not.
I think it goes back to what my mother used say “If you don’t have something nice to say , don’t say anything all”.
Proverbs 18:21 Reads: Death and Life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eats its fruits.
Now let me be the first to admit, I have definitely said things in my life that I should not have. But I have learned over time how the universe works, that those negative words come back to you like a boomerang. I will be the first to say that nobodies perfect, we all slip, but I am much more careful about what I say out loud to a person or behind closed doors.
But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person.
Many blessings to all,
