Bowhunters seem to be on an endless quest to find the most devastating broadhead for hunting big game. Heads that cut massive holes are the trend. The head must fly well, but it seems that the destruction that takes place on impact is what gets all the attention. It’s all about the wound created. If it cuts big holes and penetrates deep you got a keeper. Good bowhunters are lethal. With great skill they place their shot for the greatest impact. They know that proper shot placement is critical for a clean kill. Quick devastation…that is the goal.
But have you ever considered the wounds we make in the lives of others? Be honest, you know exactly how, when, and where to cut deep into the life of your spouse, right? Many of us have unleashed regretful words that penetrate deep to the heart of our children. Have you stopped to consider the devastation it creates?
With just a handful of years under our belt we learned the lie of, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.”
The truth is wrongful words always hurt. They cut deep. They leave devastating wounds. Good or bad…what impact are you making in the lives of others today?
“Thoughtless words can wound as deeply as any sword, but wisely spoken words can heal.”
