Watch Our Words

Proverbs 18:21 KJV Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
 
The tongue is a powerful thing. The Apostle James warns us of the dangers of the tongue in James 3:2-12. Here we are also given a warning of the danger of the tongue. At the same time, we are told that the tongue can be used for good. we can either tear people down with our tongue or we can build people up with our tongue. The words we use when dealing with people will either help or hurt. We also see that we will experience the consequences of our words. We cannot idly use words and not expect to deal with the consequences of our words.
