The Power To Give Life

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. 
-Mother Theresa

Every one of us has so much power contained in these lips of ours, emanating from our powerful souls. If we can practice releasing at least one kind word a week, every week, we would be astonished at the lives that we could change, inspire, and save.
Some years ago, I was walking down the street about to get on the bus, and I ran into a friend that I hadn’t seen in awhile. He had a bag in his hand, and as he got closer to me, he stopped and sighed as if a burden had been lifted. He said to me,”I was about to drink this quart of beer, and smoke this bag of weed, and go commit suicide. But when I saw you, I realize this was God telling me not to do this.” This man hugged me tightly as we got on the bus together and talked. I decided to miss my stop and be late for my appointment, needing to make sure that he was truly fine. Being late for my appointment for me at that point was not as important as a man’s life and his soul.
The words we speak to people can either heal, and prolong their life and enhance their existence, or it can beat them down, and make them worse than what we already see them as. We, as human beings have the power to release so much love into the earth, that an individual can just look upon us, and receive hope, and strength. We can change dispositions with our words. Create happiness.

Let’s start with little steps. Commit to releasing a kind word a week. Challenge your children, loved ones, and friends to do the same. Mark off those accomplishments. I promise you that it will come back to you.
