Harsh Words: Proverbs 26:2

Proverbs 26:2  Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest.

People say such harsh things, don’t they?  Don’t I?  Words are powerful things – especially from the “mouth” of God.  After all – He spoke and worlds came into being!  “In the beginning was the Word”.  The modern world probably talks too much.  On the news I wonder sometimes why they invite anyone on for interview as we seem to get more opinions and interruptions from the newsperson!

The trouble is that careless words are spoken and they can come back to bite us.  Some people live in fear because of threats and harsh words spoken against them (curses).  The lovely thing is that the words cannot be a stick or stone to harm you if those words are undeserved.  So, it is important to live with a good conscience.

Christian – you have placed yourself under the protection of God.  Harsh words need not be a problem now, you are equipped to forgive and to remember such things no more!
