She understands that her tongue can speak death into her marriage, into her world.
She also understands that her tongue can speak life into her marriage, into her world. It has the power to create, build or destroy.
Proverbs 18:21 NLT
The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.
Words can build a staircase to heaven or dig a deep pit to hell in your marriage.
She knows this because the Bible says she “speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction is on her tongue”. Proverbs 31:26 NIV. The NLT says “kindness”.
Proverbs 31:26 NLT
When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness.
So we can learn from her that we need to speak with:
We speak with wisdom when it is based on the word of God.
Psalm 111:10 NIV
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.
She knows :
Whilst no one will ever get it right 100% of the time, we can improve all the time.
What words have you spoken that you need to cancel so that they build your marriage and staircases to heaven? You have that power, it’s in your tongue.
