Sticks and Stones
The old saying that sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me --- well that just isn't so, is it? But you know, God does sometimes use people to speak into our lives in ways that may be painful, but true. Psalm 141:5 says “Let those who do right strike me down in kindness and correct me in love. Their kind correction washes over my head like pure oil. I wouldn't say no.” Lord, help me and my friend to always be open to the correction of those who truly care. We need it. And also, may we be that kind of person for others we care about as well. Amen.
