Ridiculing words cloaked in a thin veil of “humor” still hurt. Even if you don’t mean ill, if the person is injured by them, your tongue has become a destructive weapon not a life-giving tool.
Ridicule can also take the form of making light of someone’s sorrow.
“Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving” (Ephesians 5:4).
Before you ridicule someone, remember James 3:6 says destructive words are fueled by hell.
Your words are powerful.
Have a Awesome Day!
