They fall, and they cannot be reattached to the tree once they do. They are limited. They wither and die.
If we only realize that our words are as the leaves of trees; once uttered, we can never take them back.
Will we say what’s on our mind or will we choose the silence? Will we think twice, thrice before we speak? Will we open our mouths ruthlessly or choose our words carefully? Will we speak condemnation or life? How much will we say? Will we even talk?
One life is all we have. The words we say can either build or destroy us and the people around us. Do not let the leaves fall in vain.
Ephesians 4: 29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace into the hearers.
