Sticks and Stones

This is from ONE by Jim Evan’s

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. (Proverbs 18:21)

We all know sticks and stones can hurt me but words never will. Who ever made that up was ………. lol.

Literally, the power of life or death for any relationship is in your mouth. You possess an incredible ability to give life or death, encouragement or discouragement, truth or deception, praise or criticism, hurt or help to those around you. To understand this issue fully, you must first recognize how your own family history and the culture around you can shape the way you communicate. You communicate the way you do today because of your family. But you can change it if it is not positive. To some words are thrown around as if they don’t matter. WRONG!  You have the power of death and life in your tongue. Unleash that power toward your spouse in a positive manner and you will see the truth of what the Bible says. Choose to be negative and you will destroy your very own. Amen.
