In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
–John 1:1 KJV
Our words are omnipotent. God used his words to speak things in existence with magnificence. The use of our words can either create or destroy. If you don’t believe it, just perceive our current political climate in the U.S. Words are currently being addressed to ridicule with the intent to dismiss opposing arguments.
We should be using and infusing our words to incite good. Would it be right to say, “I like and adore what you’re wearing?” Or, instead of using our words to exalt, do you think it would be better to degrade and insult? You see, whether you like or sulk at what they’re wearing, our result should always be to say something that is caring, or not say anything at all.
With that being said, we should avoid saying anything negative, even to ourselves. The negative words will ring around in our cerebral mist, even if we try to deny this. We should also never attempt to tear someone else down using our words. It’s absurd to think that they wouldn’t have a devastating impact on another person. While we’re salivating at the other person’s pain to make ourselves feel better, our mistake might cause them to relate more with hate, either toward others or to themselves. This would only add to the bedlam already is undeniably present in our society.
I believe we should all use our words to uplift ourselves and others. We should use them to give bliss to our mothers, fathers, sisters, and brothers. We should also use them to find favor with our neighbors. And, when we’re feeling spent and not so confident, we should be intelligent by saying, “I can do this.” “I will not get stuck in the abyss” is another way you can say this with intent. It’s not a façade, if the world was created by the Word of God, we can use our speaking breath to give love and life, not death.
