This is the first in a series of four devotionals I wrote for the General Board of Discipleship’s Young People’s Ministries. You can find more info about the ministry programs, more devotionals, and other great things for young adults by following the link below.
Words are powerful. I know you are reading this thinking, “Sure, like I’ve never heard that before,” and you may be ready to dismiss this right away, but travel back in time with me for a moment. What were “those” words in your life? The words spoken out of anger, malice, or jealously?
“I hate you”
“You are worthless”
“I don’t love you anymore”
“You aren’t good enough”
