Encourage or Discourage?

Why do people insist on expressing their opinion or being negative to others?

Was the Classic Disney movie Bambi hidden from their childhood? Little Thumper says it all in one little sentence.

Isn't it amazing how ONE person's open mouth can hurt another ~ or make them feel useless?

A tongue used unwisely is as sharp as a two edged sword . . . and can cut deeply:
  • harsh words spoken in a moment of anger
  • careless words spoken to lift one's self higher than another
  • hateful words
  • discouraging words
  • comments that cause despair
  • cutting and judgmental words - meant to hurt
  • sarcastic words
Friends, take a moment to assess the words you have spoken today. Have you said unkind or hurtful words? Words that encouraged or discouraged?

God has given you breath . . . without breath words are impossible. Make each breath you have been given to encourage, not discourage.
Proverbs 16:24  Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.
