“A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, But perverseness in it breaks the spirit.” Proverbs 15:4 NKJV
Words are powerful. They are capable of hurting and healing. Deceitful and lying words are cutting words that wound and maim; they crush a man’s spirit. “Rash language cuts and maims, but there is healing in the words of the wise.” Prov 12:18 MSG. A wholesome tongue is gentle, kind and it has healing power. God wants your words to be with grace, seasoned with salt (Col. 4:6).
Father, heal my tongue, that I may utter knowledge rightly, in an appealing and acceptable manner. Make my tongue wholesome, so that my words will encourage, comfort and bless everyone, INJ.
