Make Strong Communities 'Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness" Psalms 10:7 Nothing can be so permanently damaging as the spoken word. Whatever said, however many times apologized for, has nonetheless made a lasting impression. It cannot really be "taken back." Forever remains the fact that it was spoken. The Christian refrains from cursing and bitterness. If there is nothing good to be said, or nothing constructive, then let nothing at all be said. Paul the Apostle used this week's quotation in his Epistle to the Romans, reminding them that too many men had "destruction and misery" in their ways. If your heart is filled with bitterness or resentment, do not make haste to strike out or to destroy with the spoken word.
