Proverbs 6:2 KJV
Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.
Words are powerful. Words are such that it is not advisable to say things only to wish you hadn’t, because then the harm is already done. One can never take back one’s words, because words are the outward manifestation of a person’s heart. “Be careful what you say. You can say something hurtful in ten seconds, but ten years later, the wounds are still there.” -Joel Osteen.
