Death & Life are in the power of the tongue… -Proverbs 18:21
I found this poster via Google. It’s song lyrics to Speak Life by Christian artist, Toby Mac.
I never stop and think about how powerful what we say with our tongues really is. Whether it be truth or lie, it spreads. People remember it. It leaves them feeling a certain way. Positive or negative, once you shout it into the universe, its there. Forever. You can’t take it back.
Words can be like bullets, piercing the tender hearts of our fellow human beings, scarring their insides, and creating deception.
However, words can also be like the sweetest, comforting embrace from your mother, or the mother you never had. Kind of like the warmest blanket, fresh from the dryer, wrapped all around you, after coming in from a terrible storm.
We can discourage or encourage one another.
We can curse, we can pray.
We can criticize, we can motivate.
We can Speak Life or speak death.
I choose life.
You are not alone. You are not over. You are just beginning. This is the first day of the rest of your life!
God bless everyone!
