“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (Proverbs 18:21)
You are what you say. God spoke the world into being and we are created in His image. how many have been damaged by having negative words spoken over them by a parent, teacher or minister?
Describing the tongue as having the power of life or death is about as strong a term as you could use. God is obviously placing a massive emphasis on the importance of what say, so therefore, so should we!
Watch what you say, be measured in your words, encourage, build up and edify those around you and yourself. You will inhabit the world created by your words.
Quick Prayer. “Help me to be aware of my words and the power they hold.” Amen
