“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.” — Albus Dumbledore
A teammate reminded me of this idea the other day.
In Genesis 1 from verse 3 to 29 God said a number of things which came into existence.
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light [verse 3].
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light [verse 6].
And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so [verse 9].
Words are powerful.
Words can build and they can destroy.
We should not take the words we use for granted.
