Words can produce life or death

Published:Friday | March 29, 2019 | 12:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

We, at times, take for granted our ability to be able to speak because we consider it to be normal. However, this is not only a treasure, but it is a great and powerful weapon.

The words we speak can produce life or death. Thus, there is power in the words we speak. Often, we caution adults to be mindful of what they say to children because children live what they learn. However, the root of this is that there is power in words.

Job 22:28 says: “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.” The words we speak take form and manifest themselves in our life. They are what lead us along the path of all aspects of life as our words can produce darkness or light.

Therefore, you have the power to change your circumstances just by speaking. Hence, moving forward, don’t allow misunderstandings, mishaps, bitterness, anger, or hatred to influence you to speak carelessly. No matter what the situation, speak life and wellness. There is power in you. Declare it, and you will eat the fruits thereof.
