Words of wisdom and healing.#365SunriseDevotions (POSITIVE UTTERANCE SERIES) By Rev. TE Maforo (Week 23/52)
Thursday 10th June 2021
Theme: Use Words as a Healing Ointment
Bible Reading: “When you speak healing words, you offer others fruit from the tree of life. But unhealthy, negative words do nothing but crush their hopes.” Pro 15:4 (TPT- The Passion Translation)

Ointments are substances that are applied to the skin for a healing, soothing or cosmetic effect. In our devotional our messages focuses on how our words can become a healing ointment that does not soothe the skin but goes to touch the deeper and hidden parts of human existence – the heart.

At every corner my dear brethren we are coming into contact with people with scars, fresh wounds, bleeding wounds, or septic wounds (chironda chaane hurwa).

• It’s painful when the love of your life loves somebody else.
• It crushes the very core of a parent’s heart when their child despises them.
• It is painful to be hurt by a person who shares Holy Communion with you.
• It is painful to lose your loved ones.

Did you know that most people are still grieving not because of the loss of their beloved but the words we said to them during moments of grief? As we speak my dear sisters and brothers, be very mindful of adding pain to injury.

Sometimes we may assume that somebody is not being reasonable or you think they are angry. NO! They are not angry but they are hurt to the point that the power to love, the power to have positive energy, the power to smile has been ravaged by someone who broke them with words plus actions.

Every conversation you try out with them, they would rather be economic with their words because the last time they had a long conversation they were hurt badly. For this reason we have people who only give you a yes or no answer and nothing more. Take a look at how words can make a difference to those that are hurting or have been crushed by grief.

Scripture says that when we speak healing words we set in motion the process of recovery and total therapy. But the opposite is damaging – when we speak unhealthy or negative words we destroy the hopes of even those that could at some point be able to heal.

My dear readers if we don’t always find appropriate words to console or help somebody, silence is best. The Dalai Lama said, “Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.”

The friends of Job looked at the calamity of their friend and they could only sit by him offering ministry of presence for seven days – they did not say a word but their presence spoke better than words. (Job 2:11-13)

EXHORTATION: Fellow believers may we be Christian enough and have the desire enough in our hearts to heal with words than to hurt? Let us use our words as a healing ointment to those that are wounded and hurting. Amen.
