As I mentioned in an earlier post, it was through experiencing these consequences as the recipient of careless words that God grabbed my attention about my own speech. Since I know firsthand the painful effects of such words, why would I ever want to be the cause of that for another person?
This is by no means a comprehensive list of the damage our careless, thoughtless, and insensitive words can do, but it is a start.
It is wise to consider the outcome of our words before we are in a situation to speak. This is one of the first steps toward making a change in the way we speak and avoiding careless talk.

Words . . . can give life or they can devastate. I appreciate your questions to help me evaluate the words I speak. I seek to speak words that edify others, but sometimes, I blow it. "Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable, to You, O Lord, my Rock and Redeemer." ~Psalm 19:14

You're so right! Our words really do matter. Thanks for the encouragement to stop and think--and especially thanks for the questions to ask myself before I speak. So helpful!
