The Power of the Tongue
I was just thinking; it’s no accident that the words: ‘Sword’ and ‘Word’ are only different by one letter. It says in Proverbs:
"The tongue has the power of life and death
and those who love it will eat its fruit" (Proverbs 18:21).
Doesn’t that give the term,
‘Make it, or Break it’
a whole new meaning!
Simply put: our words are powerful and how we use that power is as simple as taking a breath and speaking a series of letters. But we must choose our letters carefully, because, sometimes,
it only takes one letter to turn a word into a sword.
