Words of Life

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21

THINK

Have you ever considered the power of your words? What we say has a huge impact in the lives of those around us, and in our own lives as well. Our words are a reflection of our thoughts; our thoughts are a reflection of our hearts. In a very real way, our words are the cards we play in the gamble of life.

If we are gambling FOR God, the words we speak will be words of life and possibility. They will build others up and encourage them. On the other hand, if we are gambling WITH God, the words we speak will be words of death and denial.

What words are you speaking to those around you? What words are those around you speaking to you?

PRAY

Thank God for giving us the “power of the tongue”. Pray for discernment as you choose your words carefully. And pray for God to surround you with others who will speak words of life into you as well.

ACT

Write down a list of words that you know can bring life to others (i.e. hope, love, trust, etc.) Make it a point today to use those words as you speak to other people. Discover LIFE through the words you speak.
