Some people only feel good about themselves when they are cutting others down. Maybe they don’t know how much their words hurt other people. Maybe they even think they are being funny 😂. It’s no fun to be on the receiving end of sarcastic comments. The negative 👎🏻 things settle into your heart ❤️ and make difficult to feel good 😊 about yourself. Most people don’t realize how much words affect others. But God knows that the things we say have the power to help or hurt 😭 people. We are encouraged in the Bible 📖 to speak kindly to each other. We are told to be careful how we speak to each other- to guard our tongues. Jesus taught that we should show love ❤️ to others. A big part of showing love means being careful about what we say and thinking 💭 about how or words will make the other person feel.
