Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. It’s our choice. Do we live this life as if we were dead? Thinking with evil minds and acting with a dark heart? We don’t have to be literally dead in body to be dead in soul. Our thoughts and our words will control our actions. What sort of things do we let into our minds, things of evil or things of a spiritual nature. I was with some friends and we got on a topic of a “Slenderman”. I had never heard of it. Unbelievable! Well, actually not. This world has been over come with “self”. Desiring control, excitement, mystery, power and any other word that would describe our self interest. We must start somewhere, someone has to be the first in line, we can’t wait around for the other person to step up and show the world the way to Christ. We (You and Me) have been chosen to head up the team of warriors of Christ and lead this world back to Him. But we can’t do that if we’re living death in this life, living for self and exhibiting hatred instead of love. We have all the power we need. Not our power but His, our Saviors. Let’s take that first step together. Showing the world that it’s better to live life in this life. A life of love and gratitude. If we choose Him, we will eat the fruits of Life even in Death.
Dear Lord father, I am so thankful to You for sending Your Son to us. Giving us a living example of how to live life. I pray that I will look to Him to show me how to love those around me, how to love myself but not live for myself and how to have a grateful heart even in the darkest times. Because of Your sacrifice and His, we have Hope for today and eternity with You. I pray Lord that as I walk this life today, I will release myself to You and speak only with love and humility. I pray Lord that Your saving grace will be over my family and friends. I pray that they will choose to live this life with You and rid themselves of the darkness of this world. Amen!
