Every word that is spoken

Has tremendous power indeed;

It brings forth either life or death

As in our heart it becomes a seed.

It will reap a harvest over time

As the soil in our soul,

Is watered and is nurtured

And its fruit will thus unfold.

If our words are true and honest

They’ll bring life to everyone,

But if they’re arrows filled with poison

Much pain and harm is done.

The Lord has given us free will

To make choices every day,

And depending what we feed our thoughts

Will determine what we display.

So do the words we speak exhibit hope

Or do they bring our flesh disease?

Since life and death is in the tongue

We determine our destiny.

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit”. Proverbs 18:21

“A fool’s mouth is like destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul”.

Proverbs 18:7

“Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones”. Proverbs 16:24

“The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters; the wellness of wisdom is a flowing brook”. Proverbs 18:4
