Words can make an impact on people . . . for good or bad. They can encourage or discourage. They can incite peace or anger. They can flourish into love or hate. Choose your words wisely, for once said, they cannot be retrieved. Love those around you, even if you think that they may be unlovable. Set an example of Christ in you, by living a life that He will be pleased with . . . always!
