Wielding Words

Big Idea: Whether words are lethal or life-giving, the speaker will experience their effects. And, so will others.

Proverbs 18 (ESV)

The words of a man's mouth are deep waters;
    the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.

A fool's lips walk into a fight,
    and his mouth invites a beating.
A fool's mouth is his ruin,
    and his lips are a snare to his soul.
The words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels;
    they go down into the inner parts of the body.

20 From the fruit of a man's mouth his stomach is satisfied;
    he is satisfied by the yield of his lips.
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
    and those who love it will eat its fruits.
