Thought For The Day – 32311
Words have both the power to harm and the power to heal. Their power lies in how they are used (the intention behind them). Intention is the wind that guides them to either fan flames or extinguish them.
Devoid of sincerity and action, words are like a frame with no picture…meaningless…as are those who use them in this manner. It is to offer an empty cup to a thirsty man. This harms the speaker and those who hear them.
Spoken in truth and backed by action, words are as rocks…strong and stable…to be stood upon with certainty. The intention is peace transmitted through sound and breath. This heals the speaker and those who hear them.
Sticks and stones may break our bones;
And words can hurt us, too;
Just know that the intention you breath in all you say will return to you.
