Power of the tongue

We’ve all said things we wish we could take back. Unfortunately when the words come out of our mouth, the damage is already done, and there is no taking them back. So, we must be careful of the words we allow to come out of our mouth so that is not a setback in life for us.

Scripture says that when we guard our mouth, we keep our life. That’s because our words determine the direction of our lives, and wrong words can get us off course very quickly.

The Bible tells us that life and death are in the power of the tongue. There’s no neutral ground. We are either sowing seeds of life and productivity with our words, or we are sowing seeds of ruin and destruction with our words.

Today is a good day to take inventory of your words and make the decision to sow only good seeds. Sow seeds of life by speaking God’s Word over yourself and those around you. Make the decision today that your words will bring glory to the Lord as you guard your mouth and keep your life!
