“The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”
(Proverbs 12:18, NIV)
The Bible tells us that life and death are in the power of our words. We can use our words to build people up and encourage them, or we can just as easily bring them down. When we use our words to bring healing, the Bible says that we are wise.
Choose to be wise today and choose healing words. Look for the best in others and build them up. Choose life-giving words over gossip; choose words of freedom and peace over anger and judgment. Let your words encourage others by speaking strength, hope and victory.
Remember, words are seeds. When you use your words to bring healing, you’ll reap a harvest of health, strength and life in return.
