“> I want to  post or re-post information and stories about the many abuses of the world. There are so many victims across the world of various abuses, but every abuse leads to the same thing…a wound within each person. Then each wound leads to the same thing…a brokenness as the wounds pile up on each person. I don’t know how many people will relate to this, but I feel that many people feel that verbal abuse is nothing. Most of us were raised hearing, “Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words will never hurt you.” Well, words do hurt! Words cut deeper than a knife! How many of us are stabbing others with our words? Well, here goes…

VERBAL ABUSE: You are so stupid! You are so crazy! You are nothing! You are pitiful! You are fat! You are a disgrace! You are a joke! No one wants you! No one wants to be near you! No one wants to hear what you have to say! No one wants to see you! No one will ever marry you! It’s all your fault! You never do anything right! I could just slap you! I could cut your throat! I could shoot you! I could kill you! I will kill you! You better always watch over your shoulder, cause one day when you least expect it…

These are just a few of the things that I have been told over the years. These words that cut deep, where no human could see with the naked eye… But the wounds were there!!! We can all fill in the blanks for the things that we have been told: You are ________! No one _________! It’s ___________! You never ______! I could ________! I will _________! Anything negative, that “tears down” and does not “build up” is considered abusive. We all need to watch what we say to our children and each other.. It is easier to raise a child up right than to have to fix them as adults…

Prayer: Lord, help us to recognize verbal abuse and not fall victim to its destruction. Help us to treat people the way that You want us treated, with love and respect, not destructive words. Purify our hearts so that we will build up all and not tear down with the words that we speak in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
