An Apple a Day: Powerful Words

"Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison
 or fruit&you choose." Proverbs 18:21 MSG 

How often have you opened your mouth, said something,
 then realized your mistake and had to apologize profusely? 

All of us make mistakes. We open our mouths and speak
before we even think about what we say. Ouch! That can
get us into big trouble and lead to all kinds of misunderstandings
and hurt feelings. When it’s too late, we realize we said something 
stupid or revealed way too much. There are those kind of
thoughtless comments and then there are intentional words
that can be a poison. The snide remark over someone's appearance...
the catty comment intended to be a putdown...
the shared secret that you promised not to repeat
—those words are the poison that can kill.
