God: made it for good…
Proverbs 18:21 (KJV) “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof”.
James 3:5-6 (KJV) Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell”.
I believe that in the big scheme of things we all have some goodness in us, but haven’t learnt effectively how to let it be the rising force in our behavior. So when a particular type of stress comes upon us we let the good slide and bad behavior rises and it comes out through by words of our mouth.
Now the word of God speaks and said that “death and life are in the power of the tongue”; and that is saying something: with the use of this member you can bring life or you can denounce someone to death.
Jesus is life and if we are called to be His disciples then the one choice we have is to be life givers with this gift of ours.
Beloved, be known as a life giver: speak life..
