Psalm 19:14

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Maybe every news website on internet should have this verse pop up before people are allowed to comment on a story. Read anything political or controversial on CNN.com and you can instantly see how crass our communicating has become.  We don’t just “talk trash”..we “talk mean”….really mean. It’s as if we are becoming herd immune to manners or behavior standards of any kind.

I have heard it said that words are like toothpaste, once it all comes out there’s no squeezing it back in. Do words  really matter? I think they do, and we are personally- ultimately- accountable for everything we say.
