Scripture teaches "Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof."
What does all that mean? Simple, speak evil, negativity, defeat, woes and the list goes on; that is what you take on in your life.
Imagine, reconditioning your thoughts and words to: positive, loving, kind, encouraging, thoughtful, and humorous - you shall eat the fruit of THAT positive language.
Now, don't get bent up as if this is a practice that all of us grew up with; it was a very wise, kind and loving man who taught me the power in powerful words.
Don't believe it? Try it for a week, just say uplifting and positive things to yourself and others; do not engage in any negative conversations, if negativity arises, look for the positive. If you are not sensitive to negativity, that is an indication a change is due.
What do you have to lose? The real question, what do you have to GAIN? ........EVERYTHING!
