“A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything—or destroy it! It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire.”
Because it’s so easy to form thoughts and verbalize them, it can be tempting to speak before we think. Sometimes this works out fine, but other times…well, maybe not.
A word of encouragement can work marvels for another boosting their spirit. And a poorly chosen critical word can produce the opposite effect. How important it is that we watch our words and produce the best effect possible!
