“Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” This is a lie that many still believe. With words, God created the earth and all that is in it. Jesus is called “The Word.” With words, Isaac blessed Jacob with overwhelming abundance, to the point that there were no more blessings left for Esau. Wrong words can cause fear, self doubt, hurt feelings, inferiority, and so on. Using uplifting words, can create confidence, self worth, love, and bring a person back from the depths. What if your words had power like that of God? Or like Abraham? How are we different from Abraham? We have the power of the Holy Spirit within us! Our words do have power, and we should never forget it, especially when blessing, and cursing others. Don’t take your words lightly; the things you spew from your mouth could be a nail in the coffin of someone else, and we are of Jesus, and should bless, not curse. Don’t speak words of hate, but fill your mouth with words of love. Your words matter, make them useful for the good of our fellow humans.
As soon as Esau heard the words of his father, he cried out with an exceedingly great and bitter cry and said to his father, “Bless me, even me also, O my father!” But he said, “Your brother came deceitfully, and he has taken away your blessing.” Genesis 27:34-35
From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. James 3:10
