A Well-Chosen Word

Like Jell-O, concepts assume the mold of the words into which they are poured. Who has not been stabbed awake by the use of a particular word . . . or combinations of words? Who has not found relief from a well-timed word spoken at the precise moment of need? Who has not been crushed beneath the weight of an ill-chosen word? And who has not gathered fresh courage because a word of hope penetrated the fog of self-doubt? The term word remains the most powerful of all four-letter words.

Colors fade.

Shorelines erode.

Temples crumble.

Empires fall.

But "a word fitly spoken" (Proverbs 25:11 KJV) endures.
