31/03/20 Proverbs 18:21

The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.

This verse has always reminded me of being in school and facing the consequences for talking in class – a common occurrence. I picture a school teacher scolding someone, informing them that their tongue will bring death, with a slight mention and afterthought to the possibility of life.

But why focus on the negative? The tongue can bring life! The words we speak can have amazingly positive consequences!

Great thoughts in a season when there is so much doom and gloom in the words being thrown around.
