Proverbs 18:21 (AMP)
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it and indulge it will eat its fruit and bear the consequences of their words.
The gift of speech and communication is an amazing one. Think about this, when we first interact with God in the pages of the bible, He demonstrates to us the power of this gift. In the book of Genesis we read often the words “And God said….” He spoke and things came to being. What he said bore fruit in the form of a physical manifestation and then He made man in His image and likeness.
The tongue has power, power to change your life and the lives of others. I was thinking about this, many times I ask people “What would you do if you had 1 million dollars?” And I get many different answers but one common theme is going out to bless the orphans or street children or the less fortunate, something along those lines. Think about this, Jesus did not have 1 million dollars yet He touched the lives of many when He walked the face of this earth. How did He do it? By His faith and His tongue.

With your tongue you can let someone know that they are important, that they matter, that they are loved, that you are praying for them (ensure you use the same tongue to pray for them), that you love them.
The tongue, you can extend it on paper through what you write or throw it online through what you type or record, your words don’t die, they keep on living…….
The tongue, powerful to build and also to destroy, it costs you nothing yet the fruits can be for a lifetime!
