Are There Forbidden Words?
“…The mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart.” Matthew 12:34
“Death and Life are in the power of the tongue…” Proverbs 18:21
“The one who guards his mouth preserves his Life…” Proverbs 13:3
Words not only reveal the condition of our inner most being, they actually have more power than we really understand.
Having the freedom to choose our words doesn’t mean our bad choices are harmless.
If we recognize words as being Life giving or Life taking, would we ever allow our mouth to have control?
Wouldn’t we want to make a list and know the definitions of exactly what they mean?
