If I could, I’d recall them all
Those quickly, unguarded words that fall
They run, turn, to injure and collect
The warmth, once caring, abrupt regrets
Words contain such powerful and impactful meaning. While words can generate immense feelings of positivity, they can also generate toxic slander that is capable of potentially hurting others. Mankind tend to portray an impulsive nature. We will sometimes, if not mostly, act or say something impulsively without pondering or considering about how others may react or feel to our actions. If we are exposed and vulnerable to words that are hurtful and cause unnecessary emotional damage, we must not lash out or become vengeful in return. Instead, we must channel those emotions through God’s love and blessing that will calm us and bring us back together. James 1:19 states:
“My beloved brothers, understand this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger.”
It is in this verse what God wants from us when we are experiencing situations that involve gossip, betrayal, distrust, and anger. In order for us to resolve those differences, we have to stop ourselves and think about our actions and perhaps, even consider what the opposed side is going through. That side may be experiencing something that is negative, to the point where they are targeting others for their own selfish gratitude. We must never fall into Satan’s trap of generating toxic slander and rumors that will hurt others. Because in the end, you are standing with God, by God, and for God.
May God Bless You All ~
