Words are beautiful and they have power. I have learned through life experience to pay close attention to if a persons actions line up with their words. Here is a little secret beween me and you...
A person can either speak positive words with negative actions, speak positive words and secretly have negative feelings in their heart towards you or both at the same time.
That's ice cold. Brrrrrrrrrrr
It's not the sugar in someones words, but the razor blade underneath what they are saying. The words, deeds and actions should consistently line up. If they don't, you have a classic case of deception on your hands. If you want to know a persons heart towards you, just watch and their actions will tell on them. The key to dealing with this type of challenge is to rise above it and continue to walk in love and kindness.
The greatest book ever written says this: The words of their mouth were smoother than butter, but WAR was in their heart: their words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords-Psalm 55:21
This is a great illustration of the fact that everyone around you is not necessarily for you.
Despite what might be around you, reflect love and light because your love and light is contagious. I hope they catch it:-)
