Words of Kindness, Source of Healing
The late Florence Littauer grew up with her family in three small rooms behind her father's general store during the Great Depression. She vividly remembered once overhearing a customer tell her mother, "It's a shame there's no hope for your children!" Thankfully, Florence's father, who had the gift of encouragement, built her up into a godly woman and world-renowned Christian leader. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Florence explains that our words should be like silver boxes with bows on top. Proverbs 18:21 says, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
