If you don’t have anything nice to say…

[The tongue] is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men who are made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things should not be this way.
~ James 3:8-10, CSB

The true emotional impact of bullying and even what some might think of as less than bullying–just pickin’ on people–can be clearly seen in the pain of this daughter and her mother, who was made fun of for her cleft palate. It is what happens when we lose sight of the reality that every person has been created in the image of God, carries the worth of being His child, and is someone for whom God gave His son to die. If you have a few minutes, watch this video. She’s a wise mother, but that wisdom has come through years of pain because of the shallow words of others.
