Words No. 2

Wise words are like seeds. The more you scatter them, the more they will grow into infinite gardens of knowledge. (Suzy Kassem, writer and poet)

Words are of several kinds: foolish, hurtful, comforting, to name a few. But, once spoken, they cannot be taken back. They are like seeds that will reproduce their own kind. Will they result in discouragement or anger, or will they bring relief and encouragement to a hurting person? Kassem challenges us to guard our words, so they are wise, and will produce much good fruit.

Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. (Ephesians 4:29)
