We all heard it growing up: “Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” I’m here to tell you that we were lied to; we have all been hurt by words.

Our words are powerful tools. They can be constructive — used to build someone up — or destructive — used to tear someone down. The book of Proverbs has a lot to say about how we use our words.

Join us as we look at Proverbs 26:17-28 to discover how we can use our words to be constructive tools of grace as we continue to pursue the path of wisdom.
