Bible Text: Proverbs 10:11 |


Anyone that can control their tongue is a perfect person, James 3;2. Our mouths can be hurtful and destructive but they don't have to be. They can be life giving, Proverbs 10:11. The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life because that righteousness is based on godly wisdom, and godly wisdom begins with the fear/reverence of the Lord. In so many words, righteous people live on God. Specifically, does our mouth/speech give life by feeding people or does it starve them? Does it heal or does it wound people? Does it rescue those in trouble or does it join in the attack? If you're bothered by what you say, don't focus on what come out of your mouth, focus on what you put into your heart.
