Sticks and Stones with Words Alone



By G. P. Avants


Words are real things. I don’t care what the old saying says. If God created with words and we are made in His image then our words have power, too.

Kind words

The Bible says to guard our tongues for a very good reason. He knows what is created, good or evil, when we speak. It also says that we should be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to wrath. I imagine that means, think before you speak because once that weapon is fired, you can’t put the explosion back, baby.


I swear you can see a room change by the very words being spoken in a room. If there is positive conversation and important things being shared, you can see the hearts and faces of people brighten. When foul words are unleashed or people are slammed or belittled (even by friends who call it slaying-think about that word in and of itself) you can feel the weight of oppression in the air.

I challenge you to think of words as real tangible things. Think of words as a resource you are meant to manage just like money or time.  I pray you find the power in words and wield them wisely in a world that needs to hear them.
