The Art of Words

"If our words paint a picture, what does our canvas look like?"

My dad texted me this quote last night.
And I loved it.

Words heal and hurt.
Comfort and Critique
Lift us up and lay us low.

Words are powerful.
And the Bible teaches us time and time again about the power our words.

1. Proverbs 18:21- Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
2. Matthew 15:18- But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart that defiles a person.
3. Proverbs 16:24- Gracious words are like honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.

And the list goes on and on.

For every word, we paint a stroke.
And word by word and stroke by stroke our art is layed out for the world to see.

Every story told, tells the story of the heart.
And each canvas reveals our character.

May you paint the most beautiful canvas today.
Word by word.
Stroke by stroke.

Your canvas is clean.
And needs a little paint.
Let your first and your last stroke reveal the art in your heart.
