A Word From The Pastor

“Healing Words”

Author: 
Bill Hayden, Pastor, Villages Chapel
Date Published:

     Over the past years we have been exposed to so many hurtful words that have been spoken about others. Sometimes people feel empowered to say anything about a person without any concept of the irreparable damage that it can cause to the individual receiving it. If a person is dealing with low self-esteem issues, they can be pushed over the edge and bring harm to themselves or others.

     It’s becoming too common to hear about a young person being bullied and taking out their anger on others or resorting to suicide because of rejection. It is even worst when adults do this to others, which allows them to feel better about their own individual brokenness. As the saying goes, “Hurt people…hurt people!”

     Is it too much to expect a broken person to understand that we all come from the same broken fabric? As much as we aspire perfection from ourselves and demand it from others, we are all subject to the imperfection of being a human being in a world under condemnation. Every living thing has been given limitations upon this earth, including the earth itself.

     Each person is uniquely connected and is given the responsibility of caring for each other, as well as sharing this place where we live and breathe together. There is one earth and one people of many nations that have been placed here to make life beautiful for each other in our broken state of being.

     Is there any person who desires not to be loved, accepted and to be forgiven, especially when asked from a humbled heart? When our paths intersect, how often do we wonder about the other person’s welfare, or if we can bring a little joy into their lives?

     Since, we all are broken people, let us use our words to bring encouragement, comfort, peace, joy and love to each other because we know not, the number of our days left here on Earth.  

     Proverbs 12:25 NKJV “Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, But a good word makes it glad.” Proverbs 16:24 NKJV “Kind words are like honey— sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.”

     "GOOD NEWS!  Join us each week at 10 a.m., Pastor Bill will deliver his Sunday Morning Sermon Message on video at our website: http://www.Villagescommunitychapel.org

     May God bless all of you with good health!
