(Prov 18:21 NKJV) Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.
We have power in our words. We can build up. We can tear down.
Have you ever said something and then immediately wished you could take it back? I know I have. This is something we all stumble on sometimes.
Our words may not literally kill someone, but they can rob people of their joy, take away their encouragement and kill their hope. I can bet that every single one of us has had this happen to us at one time or another. It never feels very good, does it?
But guess what. We can also use our words to lift someone up, bring them joy and speak life into their situation.
God has given us the ability to use words to pick people up when they’re down. We can encourage them when they’re disappointed and we can give them hope when they’re depressed.
This might seem like something very small at first, but if we look at the impact we can have on those around us, day after day, it’s a pretty major thing!
Let’s choose our words wisely, bring life to people and bring glory to God!
