Growing up my mom would tell me to watch my mouth. My response was my tongue didn’t have a mirror. To be honest that didn’t go over well. What she was implying to me was to be careful what I said. She also tought me to chew my words before I spit them out. Both lessons have been valuable to me over the years.

Words are powerful and can define us in a positive or negative way. Let me give you an example, I was talking to a lady the other day who said our president was an idiot.

It is important to use words that work and make sure you know what they mean. Proverbs 18:21 says, Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. I encourage you to speak positive words over your marriage, health, finances, and children. Stay away from words that have a negative tone.
