Words

Have you ever just looked at a word and thought, “How on earth does this make sense to anyone?”

Okay, maybe you haven’t, but I have. I’ve got this habit of thinking about things more than the average teenager.

But words. They’re so bizarre. These little lines form into these intricate patterns that everyone understands. And we use these lines and patterns to communicate to other human beings.

These lines and patterns make sounds. And these sounds go in these things called ears and this thing called our brain develops them.

But we don’t have to hear the lines and patterns to know them. We can read them with our eyes. And when we read them, they can change how we behave and think. They can transform our minds around a simple point.

The God of the universe uses these words. He used these words to speak the galaxies into existence .He’s using them to communicate to us, to show us His unconditional, forever satisfying love.

Why do we take these words for granted? We speak them nonchalantly, muttering them under our breath when we feel a certain way and using them to hurt other people. But we have these words to communicate messages of hope and love. We have these words to give glory to our Forever King.

Our words can point others to our magnificent Creator, or they can steer people away from Him. They can praise Him, magnify Him, and honor Him, or they can be used to express our utter annoyance at the thought of there even being a God in the sky.

What are you using your words for?

  1. You found something to post about! Yay! 😉

    Ooh, words… yeah, I struggle with ’em. I’m a little too quick with my tongue sometimes (or my fingers to the keyboard…). Thank you for this reminder! I want my words to point others to Christ, not tear them down!

  2. Excellent post! The most dangerous weapon a person possesses is your tongue, or words. James 3:5: “Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark.”

    Thanks for the thought! And no, your not the only one who thinks that about words.
