“A fool’s mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.”

Proverbs 18:7 

There is a need for each of us to understand that what comes out of our mouths carries great power. Words can bring life to a dead situation, or words can bring death, destruction, or a whole lot of trouble if misused, positive words bring positive results, while negative words bring negative results. There is great power within our words and I want to believe that the devil recognizes the power that is in our mouths and so many times he convinces us to say the wrong words so as to derail this Gospel train we’re riding on.

You cannot preserve anybody when you gossip about them, you have to be careful that you don’t say the wrong things in the wrong way, and cause a person to turn totally away from God and miss out on their salvation because if they miss it because of you, their blood is on your hands.

How many of our problems could be prevented if we would learn how to control our tongues, how much of the heartache we cause others could be avoided if we would guard our speech. You can put a knife in a person and draw it out. It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, the wound is still there.

A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one. Physical wounds heal and bruises disappear. Words spoken out of anger or malice stay forever imbedded in our heart and mind. Be careful of what you say and how you say it. “Watch Your Mouth!” You never know how what you say will affect someone’s life.

Are you having problem with your mouth? Ask the Lord for help, think before you speak; let your words be few. Mind what you say or you might say whatever comes to your mind.
