Proverbs 16:20-28 – Writer Diane Setterfield said, “There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic.”
She is simply reflecting the truth that the Bible proclaimed thousands of years earlier: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.” (Proverbs 18:21)
Words have power – life or death. Jesus has power to create words of life in us, and resurrect where our words have caused death.
