Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
So, we understand what is death and what is life. We know the difference between the two.
We understand that the power is being placed in the hands of our tongue.
But just what is the “power of the tongue”?
“the hands of our tongue”?
Hint: Some people give their tongues too many hands.
The hands of your tongue is talking. Words spoken are your hands. That;s where the power lies. that;s where the responsibility lies. In your words.
Death and Life are in Talking!
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.Genesis 1:3
Does light qualify as life or death? Life. Light is life. When God created all He did, He was creating life. He did so by speaking words. Life and death were in the power of His tongue. Except for mankind, everything God has made was by His word.
We have that same power as believers! Life and death are in the power of the tongue.
and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
"Love it." Do you love the power of talking. Conniving people will even calculate their words to get a certain result. Manipulative people will choose their words carefully so as to get someone to believe, do or go the way they want them to!
Do you have affection toward the power or the tongue (talking)?
Do you indulge in it ~ like to talk too much?
Well, the Word says that you shall eat the fruit of your words.
UP NEXT.... "Dig in!"
