Your Words Matter
Posted by E
Post inspired by this video
You have the power to make or break someone's day. You have the power to make kids laugh, encourage young girls, and uplift your family members. You have more power than you think- and it's all in your words. You may not think you have much to say, but your words can make all the difference. Your words can convey love, patience, peace, compassion, encouragement, laughter, and joy. Or they can convey jealousy, lies, hatred, judgment, doubt, and hurt.
Words matter. Your voice matters.
So spread love, not gossip! Reach out to that new girl, ask someone how they're doing, or how you can pray for them. Let your family and friends know how amazing they are! Encourage kids, leave sweet notes for people, listen and speak words of compassion, and pray for those that are hurting.
Be intentional. Your words could make all the difference.
So stand up! Be different. Be that person that is known for their love and compassion for everyone. You may not think that you have a voice, or that your words have any effect what so ever on the people around you- but they do. We convey so much through our tone of voice, how we speak, and what we say.
I challenge you to slow down and really pay attention to what you say, and how you say it. Spread the love, not the hurt.
