Your words exposes you

Proverbs 10: 19-21

By the power of God's words the world was created...He then created man in His own image Genesis 1.This alone gives us an indication of the power of words.

Human tendency is to speak our mind, express our opinions and voice what is in our hearts but scripture instructs us otherwise.

It says In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, But he who restrains his lips is wise.

The problem is we lack the ability to restrain our lips instead opting to express ourselves, often with little regard for what we speak, which sees our words exposing us.

We are reminded in James 3:8-9 that the tongue is an unruly evil full of deadly poison. With it we bless our God and Father and with it we curse man who have been made in the similitude of God.

Your words carry weight beloved....either dead weight which is fueled by the devil to bring death to its hearers and to oneself or life from the source of life which is Jesus Christ to build up and encourage.

The tongue of the righteous is choice silver Proverbs 10:20 and even a fool is considered wise when he keeps silent Proverbs 17:28.

Dont let your words make you a fool by allowing your flesh to dictate what you say.A good rule to live by is "if you have nothing good to say, don't say anything".

Your words reflect what’s in your heart. Fix your heart and you will fix your words.For your words can either be like honey or venom. You choose.

The heart of the wicked is worth little. The lips of the righteous feed many, But fools die for lack of wisdom. Proverbs 10:19-21.
