The seriousness of our words are catastrophic. We can build or destroy with very few letters.
Most people remember very little from their childhood, but it’s near impossible for them to wipe negative words from the fabric of their life. Unfortunately once words are said, you can apologize, but not erase them. Unlike an unsent text message or email, we can’t take words back. It’s so dangerous that even the words that we say to ourselves are fatal.
The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences. (Proverbs 18:21 NLT)
That wasn’t placed in the Bible for us to ignore. I have to constantly remind myself to guard my tongue. Furthermore, I constantly ask God to guard my tongue and my mind/heart. Natural habits need SUPERnatural assistance to be broken. Ask GOD to put his SUPER on your natural and work at it. Be on purpose with your speech. Know that your words CAN HURT OR HEAL.
Speak life. Show love.
