Understanding the Power of Words


Daily Huddle Wordss

It’s easy to underestimate the power of words. But we believe that words have the power to encourage, strengthen, and uplift others. So let’s get started by understanding 3 ways words can be powerful:

  1. Words can Encourage: Be sure to use your words as a source encouragement for the people around you. Be aware and involved in their lives so that you’re able to give specific encouragement. Perhaps that means encouraging them to pursue their dreams, encouraging them to share the gospel with a friend, or encouraging them to seek counseling.
  2. Words can Strengthen: Words have the power to strengthen or weaken the people you speak with. So be careful that your words are compassionate and true, rather than insensitive or negative.
  3. Words can Lift: And finally, remember to use the power of words to your advantage–by lifting up the people in your life. Write a quick note to your spouse sharing how much they mean to you. Tell your son how proud he made you at his football game. Or email your boss a quick note of appreciation.
