The bible says that as a man thinks within himself, so he is (Proverbs 23:7). It actually has much to say about the power of the tongue and the words that we speak. In fact, the words that we speak not only affects others, but they affect you. I recall as a child saying, sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt! Oh, the lies we tell ourselves. Your attitudes, your emotional stability, your peace and your joy are all impacted by the words that you speak. So, choose your thoughts and words wisely.
