I was reading the book of James today. And I came across chapter 3 entitled, “The Untamable Tongue.” As I was reading I realized that the tongue is the most powerful muscle in our bodies. This little muscle can give a word of encouragement or cuss someone out so bad that it makes them cry. With that being said, what up with this saying: “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt?” This saying is so untrue and full of fallacies. We all know that words do hurt. We must not deceive ourselves into thinking that we are not affected by what people say. We may not show the hurt but deep down we were offended by it.
