Healing words

Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing. ~ Proverbs 12:18 (NLT)

It takes strong winds to move a large sailing ship, but the captain uses only a small rudder to make it go in any direction. Our tongues are small too, and yet they brag about big things. ~ James 3:4-5 (CEV)

KEY IDEA:
Our words are powerful and potentially dangerous.
PRAYER:
Lord, you are totally wise and your words are always appropriate and timely. My words, on the other hand, are too many, too unfiltered, and too toxic. I am asking that the Holy Spirit would take control of my spoken and written words so that every single thing I say might bring healing. Amen.
