Words Have Consequences

Be sensible and watch what you say.
                   —Proverbs 10:19

A lady kept badgering her husband to get their kaput lawnmower repaired. Finally, fed up with being ignored, she hatched a plan.

When he came home from work, she was sitting in the grass, snipping away with scissors. Going into the house and returning moments later, he handed her a toothbrush. “When you finish cutting the grass, you might want to sweep the sidewalk,” he said.

The doctor said he would probably walk again but would always limp.

A humorous reminder that words and actions have consequences.

Now, a sober reminder that words and actions really do have consequences: “By your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned” (Mt 12:37). “We must all stand before Christ to be judged . . . for the good or evil we have done” (2 Cor 5:10).

Well done trumps cleverly said.
