The words we use can be so cruel. They can discourage a friend or family member, cut open the heart and destroy someones self-confidenceeven ignite a fire and drive crowds to violence. And once theyre spoken, they can never be recalled. Words enter our ears and burrow themselves deep into our hearts … often never to be forgotten. Its little wonder that the Bible instructs us to control our tongues. Inspired by James 3:1-12, and filled with 40 relevant stories and Scriptures, this book encourages believers to speak kindness, sharing words that heal and expressing Gods love at home, at work … everywhere!
