What words still resonate in your body? Were you told you were precious, precocious, picky, or a pest? Were you told you were a beauty or a brat? So smart or so stupid? Growing and learning or incapable and doomed to be a failure? Those words have power.
What words do you find yourself using? If young ones are around you, do you hear them saying words that delight or horrify when you realize the words were learned from you?
Biblical Esther used her words with courage to save her people from massacre. Our words are powerful. Pay attention to the words you say and think today.
Please join me in prayer to create good with our words.
