With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. —James 3:9-10

The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. —Proverbs 18:21

As powerful as turning a massive horse or a rudder steering a huge ship, so is that tiny tongue in your mouth. It can be used to praise our Lord and Father or it can curse the very people that God created in His image. It can cause the fruit of life and or the fruit death. Yes, that little member of your body can build others up or tear them down. A small muscle of your body that can encourage or discourage other people.

What will your tongue and my tongue do for others today. Oh, that we would praise God, build others up and encourage them. Yes, may this little member of our body bring about the fruit of life and not the fruit of death. So be it!

Dear Father may this be the case— that I would be a builder up of people today, an encourager to them and bring praise to Your Holy Name. May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyIrr6NWjvk
