There has been a topic floating around in my world for a couple weeks, now. It has come in many forms, but always points back to the same issue.
First, there was a sermon about hurtful words. While, yes, I do believe it is important to remind people we must watch what we say, I believe it is equally important to remind people the words that are used against them, to hurt them, are just that: words. The saying “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt” is a very true statement. They only hurt if we LET them hurt. They will sting when they are thrown, but if our eyes and mind are fixed on God, we realize, quickly, that the only opinion of us that matters is that of God. We pray for the hurt sower, and move on with our happy days.
