Are people around you angry? Contentious? Is there continual arguing in your home or relationships or work that you hate? Frustrating, isn't it?
Have you considered the possibility that it may not be them but you that is causing this agitation?
Do you want to give a present to God that delights Him? Would you like to see His eyes light up with joy? It is incredible that this is possible, but we can, and the writer of Proverbs tells us how.
What you say today will have effects far beyond your imagination. Your words carry the power of life or death, good or evil, blessing or cursing. All through the Scripture, God instructs us about the use of the tongue. His tool for motivation is by showing us the tongue’s effects—for good or evil.
