Word Quality

The quality of words spoken today varies. There are words of encouragement and criticism. Words can be life-changing. “You’ve got the job!” “I’m sorry for what I have done.” “You’ve got cancer.” “Will you marry me?” “You’re fat, why don’t you lose weight?” “You’re amazing!”

Criticism specifically, is a difficult one. I read in a devotional this morning by Lysa Terkeurst, about criticism. While it hurts to hear something critical, you must gauge the criticism if it is meant to help or hurt you. I also consider the source of the criticism. If it comes from someone who truly loves you, then you can take an inventory of yourself and see if it is logical. But, if the criticism comes from a social media post from some random person, then keep scrolling.

May your day be filled with words of healing and strength.
