a few small words

Whoever said “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” was wrong.

Words cut deeper than a knife, bruise more than stones, and hurt worse than a kick in the behind.

A few small words can be perceived in a way that may seem terrible to many, but much differently if they see the big picture.

A few small words can tear someone down, and take away their hope.

A few small words can plant seeds of fear that grow into massive trees of tangled pain.

A few small words can take away all a person has worked for, all they have embraced.

One small word can change everything.

One small word can build up a person and so that they may defeat a giant.

One small word can give hope to a person trapped in the belly of a fish.

One small word can save many souls.

One small word, when considered during anger, disappointment, fear, and loss…can secure a heart.

Jesus speaks this word.  He lives this word.  He commands this word.

Love.

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.” Psalm 19:14
