Manna For Today: Wednesday, August 17, 2016
Proverbs 18:21 – The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.
The Bible is clear as it relates to the power of our words. Consider what the following scriptures tells us about words:
1. Enables us to frame our worlds.
Hebrews 11:3 – By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
2. Enables us to turn away wrath.
Proverbs 15:1 – A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
3. Enables us to avoid trouble.
Proverbs 21:23 – Whoever guards his mouth and tongue keeps his soul from troubles.
4. Enables us to build or destroy.
Proverbs 12:6 – The words of the wicked are, “Lie in wait for blood,” but the mouth of the upright will deliver them.
Speak words today that add life and build. Ask God to help you! Encourage someone to join you for encouraging accountability.
Peace and blessings!
