By Pastor Brenda Gray – The tongue is a very powerful force. God says in his word that life and death are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21) and out of the same mouth come blessing and cursing (James 3:10). The tongue also has the power to crush the spirit because your words take root.
Today there are many people walking around with a wounded spirit because of something that someone has spoken over their life. It may take days, weeks or even years for the manifestation of pain, hurt, misery or regret to take place.
The sad thing is people continue to live their life taking no responsibility for their actions, spreading deadly seeds in the lives of others causing pain and misery. We must re-visit our life to see if we have planted any deadly seeds and ask God and the other person for forgiveness.
From this time forward before you speak something into some one’s life ask yourself this
Is It Kind, Is It True, Is It Necessary. We want to build up the spirit not tear it down. Amen!
