Author requests article critique
I recently heard Perry Stone share an experiment that was done regarding words.
An equal amount of cooked rice was placed in 2 different jars. A note on each of the jars read : Jar 1..."I love you, you are good rice and I hope you live a long, long time.
Jar 2... "I hate you, you are no good and I hope you die.
After 81 days the rice in Jar 1 was still identifiable....still looked like rice (smaller amount). Jar 2...the rice had molded and died.
Jesus said "WRITE the words on the doorpost"
Words are creative....rice has not ears and yet the words written on the jars proved that even the rice was affected by what was written.
If words written on a container of rice can have this effect, just think what words do to people...We need to choose our words carefully, don't we?
Think about it.

This is powerful, Connie.
"Sticks and stones..." is just not true. Words can harm or help.
Thank you for sharing this. Amazing!

Wow this is powerful and came at a good time. I have been running a loop of negative thoughts in my head lately. I guess I better start the positive loop.
Seriously though is this really a true scientific experiment?
How scary and thrilling is that?

I never heard that story, but it is amazing how powerful our words are and we must guard our lips. Thanks for sharing.
