It is a true art to be able to take away someone’s joy, their happiness, and destroy any hope of recovery. Each one of us have this power and we seem to be keen on using it often. It can be easily done with a few words on our keyboard, our phone and then off to social media where the damage can take true affect. But why do we doo this on a regular basis and most of the time we don’t realize we even did anything. The power of words are stronger than Joshua’s ram’s horn. Words tear down more than walls, they tear down a person’s credibility and their character.
The funny thing about all of this, on the flip side, we have an even stronger power. We have an internal flame that never burns out, and this we rarely use. These are words that can build a person’s confidence, tear down obstacles, allow us to climb the highest mountain to our dreams. It’s simple, it’s so simple. “Love”. A true four letter word that has more powerful meaning than any other word in your vocabulary. It sits in us waiting to be used at a moment’s notices, but we let it fade away.
Our reliability on social media to keep in touch with one another has taken away human touch and the ability to care for each other. A phone call has now turned into a text which then turns into a facebook message or post. Yes it’s easy to communicate like this, but we lose the true feeling behind the words being spoken. We simply lose touch with our friends and family.
I remember in 1992, I was working at the airport and a pilot had a new Sony Startac cell phone. Compared to today’s phones, this was like sending smoke signals, but it was the beginning of the end on how we communicate. In less than 20 years we have IPhone,Android phones, technology grew leaps and bounds while we became these creatures that stare at our screens more than we speak to another person while we walk aimlessly into a beautiful sunset that we never even notice. And before you know it, we appear and then fade away.
Using the right words without texting them has a true meaning and power to them. Always use “Words of gold” my mother used to tell me. Instead I have let my thumbs and voice-text take over my words of cubic zirconia. Can you image if Jesus was using text? haha, then we would really be lost. But I wonder if he is on Instagram?
