The consequences of words.
Words are at times the representation of who we are or what we will become.
And how we use and understand certain words are vital to our beings.
For an example, the words “wish” and “hope.”
From a simple understanding both words might seem to indicate one’s goal, to obtain, receive or accomplish.
However, the words differed in their implication.
To wish is to vaguely desire something, but without any urgency because the probability is uncertain, and it is unimportant.
On the contrary, to hope is to firmly establish oneself in a sure expectancy regardless of the circumstance.
The world as we know it was spoken into existence. Though we aren’t gods, but in us partially is the same power through the tongue.
If harmful words cause damage to us and others, what then shall a positive word do?
Speak life into your situation, always hope, but refrain from using the word wish, if the situation is important to you.
Solomon once wrote:
Death and life are in the power of the tongue; And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Or that is to say, what you say can preserve life or destroy it; so you must accept the consequences of your words.
Speak life and use hope.
