Subject: The power of words
- A master was healing a sick child with prayer when an onlooker bean to challenge
him. When the master called the skeptic a fool and told him he didn't know
anything about such matters, the skeptic become enraged.
At that point the master said, "When one word has the power to make you hot and
angry, why should not another word have the power to heal?"
It is because even one word may have the power to cause suffering or to heal it
that practicing right speech in our everyday lives is so important.
