Why Is This Important? …
How Can These Words Help Haiti?
Because WORDS really do MATTER… in fact, words create matter.
Words ARE the most powerful tool we have. Give it just a little thought and realize that ALL things began with a thought – but thoughts will always die unless they turn into WORDS or actions.
The basis of my truth is some ancient proverbs and writings from the Bible. Paraphrased examples:
- Job 22:28 – You decide and decree (speak) a thing, and it shall be established (done) for you…
- Proverbs 18:21 – Death and Life are in the power of your tongue…
- Matthew 12:37 – you are justified and acquitted by your own words and you are condemned and sentenced by your own words.
- James 3:2 – …if you do not offend in speech [never say the wrong things], you are fully developed, perfect and able to control your whole body…
