“Hide me from the scheming of wicked people, from the mob of evildoers, who sharpen their tongues like swords and aim bitter words like arrows,”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭64:2-3‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

Arrow poison derived from the venoms of animals and from plants is used at the tips of arrows in hunting and warfare. Once in widespread use by indigenous people throughout the world, the deadly toxins are still used in South America, Africa and Asia. There is no doubt regarding their intended use.

Much rhetoric dispensed through common media outlets, bearing in mind social media IS a media outlet, is poisonous to our souls. Your words have the power to hurt and the power to heal. Are your words tipped with poison, or are they a soothing balm?Does bitterness lace your conversation, delicately stabbing at the thoughts, views, and opinions of others? Think long and hard before you put your words out there.

“A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold In settings of silver.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭25:11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
