Proverbs 18:21 "Death and life are in the tongue, And those who Love it will eat its fruit."
There are so many different fruits that live arounds us such as pears, apples, plums, oranges, and many others that have began from a seed. If those fruits' seeds are planted correctly and with the proper care, they will flourish.
Those seeds are the representation of our lives. What does that mean? Well think about it: our seeds are from the way we treat people, how we live our lives, how we raise our children, how we carry ourselves, how we act as a family, how we SPEAK and the words that we say, and so many other ways. When we act out those seeds (of what we planted and nourished) and when they ripe, they will treat us back the same way--especially if we believed in what we say and what we do.
Overall, think about the seeds we are planting. Rest assured they don't stay seeds forever, they will eventually grow. When they do, what do we want the end result to be: good (life) or bad (death) in the things we say or speak because the tongue is powerful?
If challenges come, ask God for help. He will direct our path--always. Don't forget we are HUMAN living in the flesh, but God will be there with us spiritually to get us over.
If we want life, speak positively and act positively because our lives are so precious. What we do positively will payoff in the end.
Love all of you, and be blessed!!
