Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
We talk a lot, don't we? But do we really say anything important? Let us consider some of the greatest words known to mankind.
The Declaration of Independence — 300 words. The Gettysburg Address — 266. The Lord's Prayer — 56 words. Jesus' words to us, the great commission, "Go ye" — only 2 words!
On the other hand, not long ago, the U.S. government issued an order setting the price of cabbage — 26,911 words!
Let's master our tongues! With it we can speak life, blessing, and encouragement to all those around us today!
