Wise words satisfy like a good meal; the right words bring satisfaction. The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.
Proverbs 18:20-21 NLT
Words are powerful. What we say can either hurt or heal someone. We can tear them down, or we can build them up. We can encourage a person or discourage them all by what we say.
One of the smallest parts of our body has the most power to affect others and ourselves. Our tongues have the power to damage or restore.
Today, take an inventory of your words. Do you use your words to say mean, hurtful things, or to motivate and heal others? We will be held accountable for idle words, based on what you say, that may be bad news or good news to you. I hope it's the latter.
