We use words all the time: at home, at work and online. But have you ever considered that your words have power?

When you were young you may have been taught that "sticks and stones may break your bones but words can never hurt you" yet, as we grow older we realise words can have a significant impact. So how do you use your words well?

In this episode from Bible Shots, as we continue to look at the book of Proverbs, we will see what the Bible has to say about about the power of words, what our words reveal about us and how wisdom can help us use the best words in our homes, workplaces and online.
