BETTER THAN DRUGS

HoneyWith one little member of your body you can light a fire for God in the hearts of everyone in your home or set them on a course destruction (James 3:2-12). With one little member you can minister life or death to those you speak to each day (Proverbs 18:21). With one little member you can build up your marriage or destroy it (Proverbs 14:1).

With one little member you can change the atmosphere in your home, melt your husband to pieces, determine the destiny of your children, and inspire and encourage everyone you meet.

You know what it is, of course. Your tongue.

Proverbs 16:24 says: "Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." Positive and lovely words make your bones healthy. What comes out of your mouth either fills you with life and vitality or make you miserable and in poor health.

The Hebrew word for “health” is “marpe” and means, “a medicine, curative, therapeutic and healing, and a source of vitality.” Proverbs 12:18 uses the same word: “The tongue of the wise is health (marpe).”

It's the same again in Proverbs 15:4: “A wholesome (marpe) tongue is a tree of life.” God wants your tongue to be a healing tongue—healing wounds, hurts, insecurities, resentments, and estrangements. Your healing words are the best doctor's prescription you can give to your husband and children. They work much better than drugs!

Will you ask God to fill your tongue with loving, joyful, positive, and healing words today?

Your words will determine what kind of a day you have.

Be blessed,

Nancy Campbell
