The tongue has the power of life and death,
and those who love it will eat its fruits.
My husband and I have been talking about our words a lot recently. Three of our four kids play basketball right now. We go to our children's basketball games and cheer our teams on. We shout words of encouragement to our guys and girls playing.
But sometimes things get rough. Sometimes a ref makes a really bad call. And sometimes our words become less encouraging and more coarse or gruff. Many times we have left feeling as though we should have watched our words more closely.
Just because things don't go our way, on or off the court, we need to watch our words. Whether the ref is making a ridiculous call, the car if front of us turned without a turn signal or the kids are just not listening, our words should always be uplifting.
Your words have power. Power to bring life and power to bring death. What are your words bringing?
