Your words are seeds that will take root wherever you spit them. They will either grow into something you can deal with or something you can't. Some words grow beautiful botanical gardens while others are the weeds covering vacant lots, the places where no one wants to be. Be mindful of the words you speak. For they will either build up, that which is around you, or they will destroy it all.
That thing you criticize so harshly could be treasure to another, another you consider to be a friend. This reminds me of a scripture, Psalm 55. Verses 12 to 14 pierce my heart as I think about a person being crushed by the ill spent words of one who is close: "If an enemy were insulting me, I could endure it; if a foe were rising against me, I could hide. But it is you, a man like myself, my companion, my close friend,with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship at the house of God, as we walked about among the worshipers." I've seen people gossip and speak all kinds of ill behind the backs of those who don't deserve it. We've all heard it said, "If you don't have anything good to say, then don't say anything at all!" Plain and simple, words are dangerous when misused. They devastate easily.
Words are seeds! What are you planting today? What have you BEEN planting over the last few weeks or months? The future holds all the answers. We will be reaping fruit, or we will be reaping feces, all dependent upon the words we plant today. I'm just saying.......It just hit me.......
HAPPY SATURDAY!! BE SAFE AND ENJOY YOUR WEEKENDS!! I LOVE YOU ALL, EACH AND EVERY ONE!!!
