We’d like to be able to truthfully sing the little song we learn as kids; Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me! That sounds very brave, but it’s simply not true. Words do hurt us! Every one of us has voices from that past – and maybe even the present. Someone was trying to change us from the outside in and when it seemed like we weren’t listening or cooperating – they lobbed a verbal grenade over the wall. We pretended we were okay – but their voice still reverberates in our soul. Their works, their voice changed – hurt – damaged how we feel about ourselves. To recover, to see ourselves through God’s eyes, there’s a question we need to ask. Was it true? Was it right? What does GOD think?
