I Peter 3:10 “For, “Whoever would love life and see good days must keep their tongue from evil and their lips from deceitful speech.”

The saying “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” is dead wrong. Words do hurt. Some hurt badly.

God intended a life where people say nice things, don’t play foolish games, nor make snide remarks, not speak hurtful words, but He intended us as His people to be open, honest, polite, courteous, encouraging and uplifting and choose words wisely.

Consider the following: Which sounds better? Which is better? What would Jesus speak? What do you presently say?

I love you, or I hate you

They could be a friend, or they are no friend of mine 

You look nice, or doesn’t he or she look bad

I trust you, or who can trust someone like you

I like them, or I despise them

Give them forgiveness, or they deserve hell 

Give them grace, or I wouldn’t forgive them

We are all God’s creation, or your just not like me 

You are kind, or your always mean

Your approachable, or I don’t want near you

Your smart, or your stupid

Your a good person, or your worthless 

You make me better, or I feel bad around you

Their friendly, or their just not that friendly 

Their considerate, or their rude

Their easy to get along with, or run while you can 

Interesting tattoo, or that looks sinful and awful 

Forgive her, or look what she’s done wrong 

Nice shirt, or how ugly

Sorry your sick, or they are always sick

Sorry you feel bad, or no wonder they fill bad

They can do it, or they never will

You will go far, or they will never amount to anything

Jesus is a great man, or I can’t believe you believe in Him

My dad, or my old man 

Thank you, or no response

How are you, or nothing 

Can I help, or I would never help them

Yessir, or I said yes’

She will become a great person, or she’s a tramp

You can do it, or you will never learn

You can succeed, or you always fail

I want you as my friend, or who wants the likes of you

I’m here to help, or I will never help you

I appreciate her message, or that was awful

He’s an alcoholic, he’s a drunk

She has a drug problem, or she’s a druggie 

That’s in the past, or I will never let it go

You may have misunderstood, or you know your wrong 

The writing was thought provoking, or can you believe what she wrote

We will miss them, or I’m glad they are gone

We all make mistakes, or can you believe what they did 

They need help finding work, or their lazy and useless

It’s about God, or it’s all about me

They are kind and forgiving, or they hold grudges

I believe in you, or who believes you can do anything

God Loves them, or who could love them 

They have potential, or don’t give them a chance

I think we have the idea by now! 

The words we say matter, how we say them matters, our motive matters, our agenda matters, you can’t take your words back, once a mental picture is made in someone’s mind, it’s in their minds photo album, it takes many sincere good words to change things, many good photos to change bad ones, good news though, God Can truly help us all to do as He would have us do. Mend relationships by the words you speak.

Proverbs 11:13

“A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret.”

Proverbs 11:17 

“Those who are kind benefit themselves,

but the cruel bring ruin on themselves.”
