“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (Proverbs 18:21)
I find this a hard one to learn, but its impact is profound in its enormity. God spoke creation into being and we are made in his image. We can literately create our circumstances through the words we use.
We can empower and encourage others or impact their lives negatively just by what we say. Whole lives have been destroyed or transformed by simple words. This is particularly true when spoken by one in authority like you in your business.
As one in authority you have a responsibility to consider carefully the words you use. Do not take lightly the power entrusted to you.
Quick Prayer. “Help me be aware of what I am saying and its impact.” Amen
