On The Power of Good & Evil

 

“We know not half the power of good or ill

Our daily lives posses o’re one another;

A careless word may help a soul to kill,

or by one look we may redeem our bother.

~

Tis not the great things that we do or say.

But idle words forgot as soon as spoken

and little thoughtless deeds of every day

Are stumbling blocks on which the weak are broken.”

“And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.”

James 3:6,13-18

“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”

Colossians 3:17

  3. "A careless word may help a soul to kill,
    or by one look we may redeem our brother."

    This is both beautiful and terrible...
    Beautiful because I have the chance to heal with my words- terrible because I have the chance to harm with the same tongue. Thank you for posting!

    Ps- I am on Day 28 with my Bible reading plan! I am in Corinthians and Titus, and the final chapters of Matthew. My soul is just drinking in Matthew.

  4. Amen Faith! May we pray with our brother David "Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips."

    That is great! I am so glad that you are keeping up in your Bible reading plan! That and prayer are two very important things in a Christian's walk with her Father and Husband! May the LORD continue to bless your soul and show you truth in the pages of His Book!

    Thank you for your comment!
