To think of my words as music … that gives me pause.
When I speak, what am I adding to the melody others hear? Are my words kind? Do they add a gentle beauty to the world? Or do I speak harsh words that create a discordant ugliness?
Scripture warns words can be as destructive as fire (James 3:6) and as wounding as the slashes of a sword (Proverbs 12:18). But how we speak to someone else can also be as healing as a soothing melody.
Powerful truths, yes?
Pause for just a moment and think of someone whose voice you welcome because they speak words of love and kindness — grace — to you when you most need it. Don’t you treasure their words like you savor a beautiful melody — replaying them over and over again in your mind?
