The Power of Words

“We speak thousands of words every day and all these words are accumulated: the good words, the bad words, the criticized words… we’re so flippant with our words; we’re so easy with our criticism. We stab and we injure and we hurt, and God is going to try all my word before a thousand-million people. Every word you say is going to be played back some day. The Word of God says man shall give an account for every word that he has spoken.”

-Leonard Ravenhill

“But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”
Jesus, Matthew 12:36-37

“Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.”
-Ephesians 4:29

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.”
-Proverbs 18:12

Your “word life” with others will make or break you in your own personal relationships with other people in this life. If you do not learn how to speak to other people in a positive manner, then sooner or later no one will want to have anything to do with you, and you will eventually find yourself being totally isolated and alone.

Speak to others in the way that we would want them to speak to us.

    yes it is true that the power of words are so powerful.. it defines your character.. and as Jesus said. ” It is not what enters into the mouth that defiles the man, but what proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man.”
