Proverbs 18:21–Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
The tongue is extremely powerful. With it, we can speak words of life or death to those we are around. We must take care that we are using our words wisely for we will be held responsible for the impact of the words that we say. Are we using our tongue to spread life and encouragement to all, or does our tongue share death and discouragement and pain to those we speak to?
Father, this tongue of mine is so powerful and it is so difficult to reign in at times. I pray You will give me wisdom and patience to keep my tongue in check so that I am only speaking words of life to encourage and build up those I am around today.
