Words Leave Wounds
There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. — Proverbs 12:18
This definitely captures the feeling of a harsh word. Does it not?
A harsh word feels like a giant sword thrust into us by another. It's excruciating when it comes from someone we know and when we don't expect it.
On the other hand, some men know this pain. They have been pierced a few times in their life. Maybe from the front, side, and back. They know the pain, the wound, and the healing salve that's needed. Thus they are wise and have wisdom to share that will promote healing. And fellas, if you are wounded right now, you need a man like this. So find him. He'll know what to say and probably give you some good next steps.
And fellas, if you have been wounded in the past, do something for me today. Share that wound in the comments below. Let other men know they are not alone. And maybe you might find a Christian brother to lean on today.
ASK THIS: What's that wound that needs healing today?

PRAY THIS: God, bring men into my life to guide me and help me heal.
