The Tongue — Choice Sliver
“The tongue of the righteous is choice silver; the heart of the wicked is worth little. The lips of the righteous feed many, but fools die for lack of wisdom. The blessing of the LORD makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it.” Proverbs 10:22
Jesus said to the disciples,
“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.” John 6:63
Words have spiritual power to bring life or bring death. Jesus’ words bring life. The words of the devil bring death. Those who speak wisely with knowledge and wisdom from above bring life and blessing to all who hear them. Those whose words proceed from the mouths of fools bring death to them and to all who receive their words.
Words of life are precious indeed, bringing hope, encouragement and refreshing to those who are weary, those who are downcast, those who are overburdened and those bearing the pain of sorrow and grief. The words of life are the words ofGod filled with His presence, power and peace.
“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.” Proverbs 25:11
The words of Jesus bring blessing to all who will hear them and in them there are riches indeed, without sorrow, grief or death in any form. When our words align with His words then we align our hearts and minds with His heart and mind, and His desires become our desires, His life becomes our life. In all things in Him we have life, joy and peace and that more abundantly.
