Some of you might remember the 1985 album released by ‘Til Tuesday, Voices Carry. The title track reached as high at #8 on the Billboard singles chart making the band a bit of an 80’s one-hit-wonder.
It’s a great song and voices do carry.
Earlier today I was told that during a faculty meeting yesterday our Grace teachers overheard someone standing outside the elevator loudly exclaiming: “every singe (blank) teacher….” (use your imagination for the blank)
You can only imagine how a group of teachers felt hearing someone (they are still trying to figure out who) talking about “every singe (blank) teacher….”
We all (myself included) need to be aware that our voices carry and that words are powerful.
Reckless words pierce like a sword,
but the tongue of the wise brings healing. Proverbs 12: 8
A word aptly spoken
is like apples of gold in settings of silver. Proverbs 25: 11
