The POWER of our words

I am not looking to cheat my way through a post, but this is a very powerful message (and yes, that is the guy from Bones).  I was introduced to this video when visiting EP (Exalted Patriarch-my father) recently, and it fits into the obvious lesson God has for me these days.  At least that seems to be the theme running all over me (which probably means it is a lesson I need to hear!).

Couldn't we all use a little validation? In fact, shouldn't we all be validating others?

What does the Bible say about our words? (All verses KJV)

Proverbs 18:21 
"Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof."
 Matthew 12:35-37
"A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned."
Ephesians 4:29
"Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers."
Psalm 19:14
"Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer."
I could go on and on. Are you seeing a theme here? Do the right thing.


  1. Oh yes. This is a lesson I teach my children repeatedly. Proverbs teaches us that "death and life are in the power of the tongue." Each time we use it we have the opportunity to bless or curse. We may not always make the right decisions, but we should certainly be accountable for the choices we make.
    Thank you for this reminder.
    Peace and good.

  2. There has been a flurry of this theme presented to me in the past maybe 2 weeks. I hope I am getting the message.

    Thank you for commenting.
