THE POWER OF LANGUAGE It is said that some time a Greek merchant, rich, gave a banquet with special foods.
He called his slave and ordered him to be the market buy the best. The slaves returned with beautiful dish.
The merchant removed the cloth scared and said: - Language?! This is the most delicious dish?
The slave, without raising the head, said:
-- The language is the most delicious dish, yes sir. With the language that is asking water ... Iguaria ... Mom say, we are friends, forgave. With the language meet people, say my God, we pray, sing, we say I love you ...
The merchant, not very convinced, wanted to test the wisdom of his slave, and sent back to the market, this time to bring the worst food.
The slave again with a beautiful dish, covered with thin fabric. The merchant, anxious, removed the cloth to get the worst food.
Language-again? He said, amazed. - Yes, language, the slave replied. It is the language with which we condemn, separate, cause intrigue and jealous, blasfemamos. It is that expulsamos, isolamos, enganamos our brother xingamos father and mother ...
There is nothing worse than the language; nothing better than the language. It depends on the way that we use. Many ills have been caused by a single word or sentence pronounced. Says a saying that talking is silver, silence is gold.
Words hurt, kill, magoam, sow doubts, are sin, generate hatred ... And often say what you want, hear what they do not want.
A word, a phrase, can hurt more than the physical pain. The physical pain may cease with a medicine, but the pain caused by a word or phrase, often neither the time off, and when cleared, often leaving scars.
The sins of the tongue is so serious that occupies the whole chapter 3 and part of Chapter 4 of the Epistle of James in the New Testament. The Bible teaches us that "the lips of fair pasejo rejne to many, but for lack of sense, the die fools"
Jesus, censoring the Pharisees, he said that "the mouth speaks from the heart that is full.
"So says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy of Israel: I am the LORD thy God, who teaches you what is useful, and guide you along the way to what should go." (Isaias 48:17).
