The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat it's fruit.
Proverbs 18:21From the fruit of their lips people enjoy good things.
Those who guard their lips preserve their lives, but those who speak rashly will come to ruin.
Those who guard their mouths and their tongues keep themselves from calamity.
The Sovereign Lord has given me a well instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
Over and over the Bible reminds us of the power of the spoken word. Our words are important. They provide a window into the heart and mind and can also bring change, for better or worse, in the hearts and minds of others. No matter what is going on around me, whether in my life or the lives of others, I have the option of choosing whether I am going to speak life and love into a situation or negativity and unrest. I want to be the person who speaks life, both in my own circumstances and in those of others.
