The Tongue III: The Language of Death
We’ve been hearing a lot of words as we listen. Those words we hear will produce various results in our life. Some of those words bring encouragement, but some brings very disastrous results.
What do I mean “disastrous”? How many of you will be encouraged when you hear curses? I guess all of us will not be encouraged.
Curse words will only bring death in our being. As what was written in Proverbs:
Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
– Proverbs 12:18
Those words are like a sword, it can destroy our soul. It is like killing you softly by pouring out those words in you. Curse words destroy everything; it has a power to destroy relationships, can destroy our thinking about life, and most especially, IT CAN DESTROY YOU. Just imagine you’re in a house where cursing is just a normal talking, imagine the destruction that is taking place inside you when you always hearing and receiving those kinds of words.
Cursing will never bring good in our life, it only brings death; that’s why I call it “The Language of Death“. As what I’ve said before, if you have nothing good to say, SHUT UP! Learn how to control your tongue and you will get its fruit, depending on how you use it. It only produce two fruits: Life and Death. Use your tongue wisely and learn how to control it.
keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies.
– Psalm 34:13
For, “Whoever would love life and see good days must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech.
– 1 Peter 3:10
