Sarcasm=”To Tear Flesh”

Sarcasm is a strange habit.  The word “sarcasm” comes from the Greek word that meant “to tear flesh.”  When we are sarcastic, we cut others with our words.  Sometimes it’s done humorously or caustically.  However it’s done, the ultimate result when we’re sarcastic is that we slice people with our tongues.

Over my life I have been a Samurai at it.  Fortunately, God has shown me this weakness and I have improved.  But it is something I need to guard constantly against.
