The old saying “Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” The idea that words never hurt is a false myth and we know from experience that words can devastate, destroy, and may have lingering consequences for years to come.
On the other hand the right words spoken according to Proverbs 25:11 are ”like apples of gold in settings of silver.” Where do we find such comforting, guiding, healing words? In the promises of God given to us in the Scriptures.
Jesus never spoke with a “double tongue.” What He said He will do and fulfill. Knowing the Scriptures is to know the authentic, real, and true words, not some counterfeit and fake as Psalms 55: 21: describes: “The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart; His words were softer than oil, yet they were drawn swords.” From the mouth the heart speaks.
The Greatest Words Even Spoken teach us the words of Jesus that have changed the course of history by changing, millions of lives, one life at a time.
