Have you really thought about the power you have to either inspire or uplift yourself and others simply by the words you use? Do you realize that words are the simplest yet most powerful tools that can be used to change any situation in an instant?
As we find ourselves amidst natural/human disasters, conflicts between nations, mass revolution in Arab countries, hunger and starvation in Africa, wars, child related crimes, drug abuse/trafficking, global economic and social crisis, it has become very clear that we are living in a sick world that desperately needs healing words.
Imagine how pleasant and different the world would be if those of us who claim to be passionate about God and His word do kind, helpful and beneficial deeds such as using inspirational words of wisdom to encourage someone everyday. Certainly, the results will be astonishing and the world will indeed become a better place because we can actually overcome despair with hope, fear with faith and evil with good if we make a commitment to inspire one another with 'positive and loving words' as against 'negative and hateful words'.
I strongly believe that meaningful acts like these are very pleasing to God and far better than just complaining about the wrong things of this World. We can all be part of the solution to the devastating problems plaguing many nations by becoming significant partakers in an "inspirational revolution" of making a conscious effort to speak positive words because these spoken words ultimately become the reality of who we are. All we need to do is to consciously and constantly use kind words of inspiration to either encourage or challenge others to be and do good.
And while we are at it, let's not forget to practice what we preach because we must first and foremost become the change we desire to see in the world. So let your words heal, and not wound!
