I have been working my way through Proverbs with pen poised in hand, recording what my Divine Teacher is saying to me. I have again been impressed with the myriad of references to the power of the tongue.
Here are just a handful of selections from Proverbs:
Proverbs 12:18 There is one who speaks like the piercings of a sword. But the tongue of the wise promotes health.
Proverbs 14:4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.
Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.
Proverbs 31:26 She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
How will you use your tongue today? For good or ill, for your will or God’s will?
