In a given day the average person speaks about 16,000 words. So what impact do they have, how should we be using those thousands of words? You don’t have to look far to see the power words have around us. The airwaves are filled with new stories that are littered with rhetoric that is harsh, even inflammatory, that often draws emotional reactions from those consuming it. Social media is becoming a more and more hostile place where perspectives are shared, and conversation is not often encouraged. And it feels like it keeps getting worse. The news feels darker and angrier; some are starting to swear off social media because of the volume of inflammatory remarks being posted. In the middle of all this God has something to say. So for the next 7 weeks we are going to open God’s Word and hear his commands and wisdom around the power of the 16,000 words we speak each day.
