Word Filled Wednesday: Be Careful What You Loose

Word Filled Wednesday: Matthew 16:19

Have you ever angrily whispered, “Drop dead” to someone you love? Or typed a quick “Consider it done” when a friend has appealed to you for prayer over a situation in their life? Or said “God bless you” to someone who’s just sneezed? These are all examples of seemingly innocent utterances that pack a lot of punch. Proverbs 18:21 {NIV} says:

The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

This means that we must guard our tongues and be careful of the words that we speak. When we’re talking over our lives and the lives of those around us, we must always be aware of the words that are coming from our mouths and the intent of our hearts. As children of the one true and living God, we have power ~ the Lord says that what we bind on earth, will be bound in heaven just as what we loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. So we need to be careful of what we loose…

Scripture & a Snapshot
