To the editor:

There is so much good in the worst

of us

And so much bad in the best of us,

It hardly behooves any of us

To talk about the rest of us.

But when we do, we use a lot of four-letter words. Four-letter words are expressed in one of two ways:

Those with negative connotations — fear, hate, kill, evil, hurt, cold, lost, want, need, etc. And those with positive connotations — good, love, hope, give, nice, kind, hold, warm, just, come, help and the four-letter word above all, Lord.

Jesus said in Matt. 15:11, “Not that which goes into the mouth defiles a man; but that which comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.”

Careful with fire is good advice

 indeed,

But careful with words, is 10 times

 doubly so.

Boys flying kites can pull in their

 white-winged birds

But you can’t do that when you’re

 flying words.

Thoughts unexpressed often fall

 back dead,

But God Himself cannot kill them

 when they’re said.

Think about this: To the world, you are just one person, but to one person, your words can make or break.

God bless you and what you say today. May it be to His honor and glory, and bless someone else today.

God loves you, and may you experience the happiness, joy and peace that comes from a relationship with Him.
