Sticks and Stones

Remember the childrens nursery rhyme 'Sticks and Stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me'.
Well the case actually is in this electronic age that words on emails, websites, texts etc can actually be just as damaging as being physically beaten or attacked, though the time inbetween may be longer. Another medium is Film and TV, words and images can spread like wildfire causing whole nations too rise up against there leaders. I am not saying this is good or bad, just the reality of it. It is so easy too get caught up in this whirlpool of emotions instead of taking solace from God or some stable force.

Then your words will become like Gold and a soothing balm too the heat of the moment
