1 Peter 3:10 (NIV)
10 For, “Whoever would love life and see good days must keep their tongue from evil and their lips from deceitful speech….”
James 1:26 (NIV)
26 Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless.
The secret to a great and fulfilling life lies in the tongue. How powerful your tongue is! And yet, how often we fail to control our tongue. Rather, we let our tongue control us and our lives. Your words can give life and healing to you and those you come in contact with, or death and sickness.
Today, make it your goal and desire to bring your tongue under control and away from evil. Speak only positive things into the lives of others. Speak positive words into your situations. Stay away, in fact flee from any form of deceitful speech.
Let your words be a blessing to others. Let your words glorify your God. Be blessed today and bless others along your way. God loves you and has a special Word for you today!
Proverbs 18:21 ~ The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
