Speaking the Truth in Love
This book looks at the hurt words can cause or the healing words can bring if used right.
Words have a power all their own. This book looks at the hurt words cause through bragging, complaining, gossip, unchecked anger, and careless remarks and it also looks at the healing words can bring if used right.
THIS BOOK HAS PEOPLE TALKING-CAREFULLY
The tongue may be small yet it wields an astonishing power. James compares it to a wild horse, a wandering ship, or a raging forest fire."I wish I could place love and truth deep in my mind to filter every word I speak," writes Carole Mayhall. Our mouths are supposed to be fountains of life (Prov. 10:11), but all too often they sound like babbling brooks.
Carole's personal examples and gentle instruction in this book will help you avoid the tongue's five most troublesome slips: bragging, complaining, gossip, unchecked anger, and careless remarks. She has struggled enough herself to know what works-and what doesn't.
"I am convinced," she writes, "that if we dwell deep with God, the overflow is going to consistently seep into our conversation." Soon you, too, will be speaking more words that heal. And fewer words that hurt.
