The Power of Words

I went to see the latest Harry Potter movie with my son this evening. It was enjoyable - even having read the book.... even with my son (who has also - and more recently - read the book) piping up from time to time "yeah. That was in the book."

There was one quote that really spoke to me, though. Not because I believe words are "magic" - but I do believe they are powerful... and inexhaustible!

Words ARE capable of inflicting injury and remedying it. They can build up or tear down. They can unite and can scatter.

Help me to be cautious with my words, Lord - May I use them to encourage, to heal and empower others. Remind me that once spoken, they can not be taken back - and their damage may last a lifetime. Help me to choose wisely, the words spoken from my mouth.


"Words are, in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic, capable of both inflicting injury and remedying it." ~ Albus Dumbledore
