1) @ThomasWic just posted a great thread, everyone check it out.
It made me think of the scripture "To whom much is given, much is required."
There are things we desire, but if we are not prepared to attain them, they can destroy our lives.
As an example... Do you want your words to have more power?
Then ask yourself.
How often do thoughts go through your mind, that don't immediately...
2) fly out our mouth? Can you keep a secret? How about a promise? Does your language need some cleaning up? Do you always try to be honest? Do you use your words to purposely hurt people? Do you know when to not talk, and to listen instead?
If you realize that you are lacking in any of these areas, and you want to have a platform where you can have a great effect, speaking to large crowds...
then make a conscious effort to work on them.
The effort will be worth it.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
