Words Either Tear Down or Build Up

Be careful! Our words can hurt or help. “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up”. – Ephesians 4:29

As shared in the post “Letter of Recommendation”, each changed heart was a letter of recommendation from Christ to qualify Paul as a minister of God’s word. In the same way, the knowledge of God can multiply because of your character. The way you treat others, what you say to others, and how you encourage and affirm others.

The following poem inspired from the song Words by Hawk Nelson.

Follow God’s way
And things will be okay.
Give an encouraging word
And others will be spurred.
Fill them up in their youth
With words of God’s truth.
Not breaking them down
But offering the crown;
The crown of victory,
A person of history,
Whose reach is broad
As a child of God.
