By Your Words

 

By Your Words
By Christine Hare Tate
~

Beware of those who tear you down
with words that can destroy…
being in their presence
will rob you of your joy!

They make a science out
of constantly complaining,
and even if the sun is out
they still think it is raining!

The words they speak sting,
just like a poison dart,
unaware those words flow from
the depths of their own heart.

They never seem to enjoy
one moment of the day;
It is from these people
we need to keep away.

Be the one to edify
instead of tearing down,
and you’ll be the person
others want to flock around.

‘By your words you will be justified, or by your words you will be condemned.’
[Matthew 12:37]
