Pull out your calculators. This past year, if someone had paid you ten dollars for every kind word you ever spoke about other people, and also collected five dollars for every unkind word, would you be rich or poor? “Come children! Listen to me! I will teach you what it means to fear the LORD. Do you want to really live? Would you love to live a long, happy life? Then make sure you don’t speak evil words or use deceptive speech!” (Psalms 34:11-13) With every kind word you make a deposit to the account of someone’s happiness. With every unkind word, you make a withdrawal.
