The words of the godly are a life-giving fountain;
the words of the wicked conceal violent intentions.
Our words can bring life to others or tear them down. One wrong word or tone can change what someone hears or feels about what you’re saying and turn them in the right or wrong direction. We should only use our words that bring loving, godly direction to people and situations.
This doesn’t mean our words are fluffy and feel good. Sometimes truth and love are painful to say and hear. In the end our words should bring life and direction.
Lord guide my tongue and heart to bring life to others and never do anything that tears someone down.
