WATCHING WORDS

[115a top] Gemarah: If one does “Onaas Devarim” (insulting his friend), he must do much Teshuva (and beg forgiveness).

D-E-ep Thoughts: Words carry tremendous power. They create worlds (literally) and have the power to destroy them. Before we thrash around a Heavenly hammer, we must carefully analyze what we would like to say and its potential effects.

Today’s P.I.P. (Put Into Practice) TIP: Let us stop responding instinctively (for physical drives are the Yetzer Hara) and use Higher spiritual intellect (our true soul selves) to build more good in our worlds.
