“A man has joy by the answer of his mouth, and a word spoken in due season, how good it is?” Proverbs 15:23. Words are like powerful instruments for good or for ill.  We can use words in destructive ways, or we can use words to build and encourage.  In a world where words are often wielded as weapons, may we use our words as tools to build up others.  Gentle words are more powerful than angry words.
