The Power of Words

I’ve been reading a book called “A Way With Words”  for the last few days, and have been thoroughly enjoying it.  It is amazing the power that words posses.  Saying the right ones at the right time has never come easy for me.  There are some people I know who seem like they always have the right thing to say at the right time.  I want to be like that! 

“Your mind is a garden, your thoughts are the seeds; the harvest can either be flowers or weeds.” –Author Unknown 

“Words—so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.”  --Nathaniel Hawthorn

Proverbs 12:18 “There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”

Here’s a neat collection of verses that show what the Bible has to say about words.  You can copy and paste it into your browser. :-)
