4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.
Today’s Inspiration: The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life. Proverbs 15:4.
What an awesome statement King Solomon has written. Our words, thought and deed should have the mind of Christ since the spirit of Jesus lives inside of us. Once we have the mind of Christ, we will not easily react.
Nobody meant evil for us. It’s our inferiority complex and insecurity makes us perceive that people are against us and how they look at us. What is sown in childhood years is harvested in adult years. The tares of the past have to be removed from our spirit and soul. A healed soul do not easily react. All reactions are due to pride, self- centredness and insecurity. So let us avoid the landmines of reaction so that there be peace within our hearts. Life is more than a reaction.
Many of us meant well for the other party but unfortunately a hurting person twisted the message and brings strife to both self and others. Our words are a reflection of ourselves. Jesus says that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
We should not easily react because its not to our advantage and it is prone to breakup of relationships. Instead love one another. A heart at peace gives life to the body but envy rots the bones. Proverbs 14:30. Let us create an environment of love and acceptance.
