21 The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
What words come out of our lips? What do we utter? The tongue is a very powerful tool. It can bring us to heights and depths of this world. It can make or break hearts. It can destroy, sustain, keep relationships.
Luke 6:45 says of this: ‘ A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.’
Are we storing hatred, anger, resentment? Or out of the abundance of love, joy, hope and faith in our hearts brings forth healing, happiness, strength and words of encouragement?
In Facebook, blogs, twitter or the many SNS we use, are we posting life or death?
Choose life, and live.
