An Evangelism Thought...
“With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.”
James 3:9-10
“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” The old saying may comfort children, but it also provides an excuse for how we often speak to others. Words hurt, but God doesn’t desire for us to use them that way. We are here to praise God and to uplift each other.
