A MAN HAS JOY BY THE ANSWER OF HIS MOUTH, AND
A WORD SPOKEN IN DUE SEASON, HOW GOOD IT IS!
( PROVERBS 15:23 *NKJV )
Dear Brethren ,
Words are very powerful for they can either build up,
or tear down others. Also foolish words can bring about
our own destruction, for it is written; IN THE MOUTH OF A FOOL
IS A ROD OF PRIDE, BUT THE LIPS OF THE WISE WILL
PRESERVE THEM. ( PROVERBS 14:3 )
We are also warned about gossiping for it is written; IN ALL LABOR
THERE IS PROFIT, BUT IDLE CHATTER LEADS ONLY TO
POVERTY. ( PROVERBS 14:23 ) For after all; A WHOLESOME
TONGUE IS A TREE OF LIFE, BUT PERVERSENESS IN IT
BREAKS THE SPIRIT. ( PROVERBS 15:4 )
Further, God has instructed us to encourage
one another, for it is written; LET US CONSIDER ONE ANOTHER
IN ORDER TO STIR UP LOVE, AND GOOD WORKS, NOT
FORSAKING THE ASSEMBLING OF OURSELVES TOGETHER,
AS IS THE MANNER OF SOME, BUT EXHORTING ONE
ANOTHER, AND SO MUCH THE MORE.
( HEBREWS 10:24-25 )
So, remember to keep the words you speak
soft and sweet. For you never know from day to day
which words you'll have to eat!
