Let me see what God has to say about words.
And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? Or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.
Joseph was hated for his words. This show that words can have a lot of affect on people.
2 Sam 7::28
And now, O Lord GOD, thou art that God, and thy words be true, and thou hast promised this goodness unto thy servant
God's words are always true. Ours should be too.
And they spake unto him, saying, If thou wilt be a servant unto this people this day, and wilt serve them, and answer them, and speak good words to them, then they will be thy servants for ever.
Here it says good words, so that must mean there are words that are not good.
Are we being careful to speak good words?
Can good words become bad words?
How forcible are right words! But what doth your arguing reprove?
Right words are forcible! And we can use our words to argue. I don't think that is what God had for us originally. Arguing I mean.
Shall not they teach thee, and tell thee, and utter words out of their heart?
Our hearts can speak. We should speak from our hearts more often. Then we would speak in love.
Should not the multitude of words be answered? And should a man full of talk be justified?
Could this be saying sometimes we talk to much? I know I have been guilty of that.
That thou turnest thy spirit against God, and lettest such words go out of thy mouth?
This is talking about those bad words. If we turn our spirit against God, nothing good can come from that situation.
Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.
Do I treasure His words more then my necessary food? I pray I do.
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in Thy sight, O LORD, my strength, F63 and my redeemer
Well there is a lot more about words in God's word, but I think this is a great place to stop. Sounds like a great verse for me to stand on today and everyday. Will you join me?
