The Soul is Dyed the Color of its Thoughts

“The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice.

http://media.blubrry.com/whatwillmatter/whatwillmatter.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/CC-020713UnkindWords-AreWeapons.mp3

With four teenage daughters, I frequently find myself correcting, disciplining, or simply protesting unnecessary and unkind comments certain to anger or wound a sister and evoke counterattacks that fill the air with nastiness. Hoping to get them to think before they speak in the future, I often ask, “What did you expect to accomplish by that remark?” and “Did it … Read More The post COMMENTARY 975.2: Unkind Words Are Weapons appeared first on What Will Matter.
