Proverbs 18:21: Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Words are not simply sounds caused by air passing through our larynx. Words have real power. The power of our words can actually destroy one’s spirit, even stir up hatred and violence. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.
Considering the ‘powerful force’ of the words we utter, we must discipline ourselves to speak in a way that conveys respect, gentleness and humility.One of the clearest sign of a moral life is right speech. Perfecting our speech is one of the keystones of mature people. Before speaking take a few moments to contemplate what you will say and how you will say it; while considering the impact they will have on the listener/s. Be kind to all and speak words that are beacons of inspiration, enthusiasm and encouragement to all. Kind and sweet words are always music to the ears of the listeners.
