Proverbs 12:18 ” Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”

Hurt people don’t always have to hurt people. Some of us by the grace of God heal, grow, and live our lives helping others heal, grow, and live for Jesus. So what makes the difference? We can either hang on to our hurts & wear them like a badge of honor, reacting anytime we are confronted with thoughtless & reckless words of retaliation…or we can take to heart God’s Words in Exodus 15:26 when He said, “I am the Lord, Who heals you.” For only the Lord has the power & mercy to heal in the peace of His salvation…our healing from the damage inflicted by sin only coming through Jesus Christ…by whose wounds we are healed. But the decision is ours to either heal, grow & live for Him by submitting to His authority…or holding on to our hurt & growing bitter.
