Our words have power to make or break a person’s life, including your own. The words that come out of our mouths can change the course of a person’s life, behavior or purpose. It is up to us what words to say, whether the words are seasoned with good or bad ones. It’s better if we can always let the good words come out regularly.
When I was growing up as a child, various people said all kinds of words to me, negative and positive alike. Those very words altered the way I view about myself and how I would behave when I am around with other people.
Some said I was a snob. I was like this (or still am?), because of the words that were carelessly hurled at me. It hurt my self-esteem.
As a teenager, girls in the school send love notes to me. But instead of being delighted of that privilege, I viewed it as an insult. They were probably making fun of me. It’s all because in the past, people closed to me said negative words about my looks. And those words I accepted as true.
Although I view myself as handsome now haha, hence the Gwapito.com name for my site!
It is indeed true of what James said in the bible, in James 3:3 that our lives are like a boat traveling out in the sea and the rudder as its guide, a small part of the ship could change the course of it travel. Likewise our lives traveling out in the sea of life, and we have a tongue, a small part of our body, but could make or break our lives and other peoples’.
