Why do words spoken to us eons ago stick with us? Don’t you remember certain conversations with coaches, teachers, or parents from your past? And have you wondered why you remember those words? Why do words, mere words, which have no form or substance, hold such power over us?
Words are symbols. Their power lies in what they represent. Words represent our thoughts, feelings, and ideas. When we say a word, we are trying to communicate something from our soul. That’s why words are such powerful symbols. They are one window to the human soul. The ancient Hebrews said words are so powerful, they’re like arrows. Once released, they can’t ever be brought back.
