Words are powerful either for good or harm. Every encounter we have with a person whether family, friend, co-worker, stranger is an opportunity to impart life words or words of damage. With just a few words we can send someone’s spirit soaring or crush someone’s spirit. We are to be careful and generous with life giving words because they are potential source of grace – God’s grace to people who desperately need it. Every day we are surrounded by people who need to be built up. The world has beat them down. People have deceived them. Life has confused them. We have the words of life and can encourage them and make them stronger.
