In school, math was never really my thing. I was more interested in books (or sleeping, but that is a different story). Words captivate us. They can lift the heaviest heart and heal the deepest wound. They can incite romance (like mine do with my wife) or charge an army. Words can be overwhelmingly powerful…
But they can also be indescribably destructive. Relationships can be ruined by a few sharp words. People can be broken quickly and hurt deeply in just a few sentences.
Isn’t is funny how it takes so many more words to build someone up than it takes to tear them down. I write this as a reminder to myself and hopefully to you. Remember we are all born with one of the greatest tools of construction, but when used poorly, it becomes one of the greatest tools of destruction. This power is simply the power of words.
Who have you built up today?
