“A harsh word is like unto a sword, but gentle speech is like unto milk.” (1)
We live in a time when it is fast and easy to send our words flying around the world. This is especially the case via social media. Which means ordinary folk now have a type of power unknown to the generations that came before us.
But with great power comes great responsibility.
“Every word is endowed with a spirit, therefore the speaker or expounder should carefully deliver his words at the appropriate time and place, for the impression which each word maketh is clearly evident and perceptible. The Great Being saith: One word may be likened unto fire, another unto light, and the influence which both exert is manifest in the world.” (2)
