Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:21
Proverbs 18:21 is one of those verses that spoke directly to my heart the first time I heard it. I have learned several truths from this verse which I have used many times in my Christian walk.
Truth One: Someone else’s words do not have the power to determine life or death over me.
Truth Two: It is the words I speak which ultimately determine the path I choose to take.
Truth Three: There are only two choices, life or death. Choose your words wisely.
Truth Four: If you love life you will speak the things of life, if you love death you will speak the things of death.
Love life by speaking Truth (The Word of God) and guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus our Lord.
