Arrows and Swords

By: Lewis E. Thomas

We all know arrows and s(word)s are weapons designed to kill.
Did you know your "words" can also harm others and sometimes kill?


Have your words ever "cut" another to the depths of their heart?
Have you ever used words to "completely" cut someone apart?


The Holy Bible says cutting words should "never" leave a Christian's lips!
How many of your "ARROW LIKE" words have shot out with a "poison" tip?


Our words can inflict injuries on another's spirit that will last for life!
How many of your arrows are "still embedded" in the heart of your husband or wife?


Think about your arrows or words and the damage they can do!
Would you want someone firing those arrows or cutting words at you?


Which wounds last a life time?
I thought about that for a while.
There is no "Greater Wound" than the ones inflicted by your "own" child!



Anger can make us speak our mind when we should be minding our speech.


A person with a sharp tongue will eventually cut their own throat.


How you make others feel about themselves says a lot about you.


"Words scar more than you think; so think before you speak."  ~ Unknown


“There is one who speaks like the piercings of a sword, but the tongue of the

wise promotes health.” (Proverbs 12:18)
