“The simple moral fact is that words kill.” ~~Jesus

Jesus warns us to be careful about what we say to others. Our mandate is to love. Anything other than that is not acceptable. Our words to others is a reflection of life or death. This is stark but He gives a whole new way to live through His Holy Spirit.

In His world (Kingdom) there is no loving your friends and hating your enemies. It is only love. What we say to others should reflect that. He demands it.

“The simple moral fact is that words kill.” ~~Jesus (Matthew 5:22 The Message)

    Michael…you might want to go to my promise book website (http://PromiseBook.net) and do the linkback for this article under Proverbs (menu heading) I just posted an article there today on words from Proverbs. It would be more appropriate as opposed to an article about a Word from God regarding Israel. 😉 God bless you!!!!

      Lyn, thanks for the great suggestion. Much appreciated.

      Have a great day. God is with you.

    Here’s the actual link for you! http://promisebook.net/2012/11/04/the-power-of-words-and-godly-correction/ And thank you so much for the link back!

    It was just a suggestion..seems to go right along with my post on promise book..the Holy Spirit is sure at work when you see a bunch of similar posts…isn’t He? God is awesome!

      Again, thanks. I’ve corrected to this post and link.

        It wasn’t really a ‘correction’ as you didn’t do anything wrong..however, my first message came across like that and I noticed after I read it…I didn’t mean it that way. I actually thought, “Wow..the Holy Spirit moves when so many people are writing about the same thing! Amazing! i’ll bet he’d like to link to the one I just posted on my other site!” That’s what I thought… but there was nothing you did wrong to correct. God bless you!!!! Hope you’re enjoying your Monday… gotta love the Mondays, huh? 😉

    I just thought to tell you…in case I wasn’t clear..I’m leaving it there too..where you put it….but you might want to link people back to this article from the one on promise book too since they’re about the same thing. I hope I did not imply NOT to have it where you have it at all.that wasn’t what i meant..I’m typing fast and doing several things at once. Sorry, again, if I wasn’t clear.
