What Are You Planting?

What seeds are you sowing when you speak?

We hear often that life and death are in the power of tongue. (Prov. 18:21) However, I don’t believe many of us ever stop to think of just how lasting words are. Literally every word we speak is a seed that gets planted and bears fruit - fruit that in turn bears witness to the seed that was planted.

Negative seeds = Negative fruit

Positive seeds = Positive fruit

“Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me” is a lie. In fact, I’d argue that words hurt worse than weapons and create wounds that last longer - though they may not be as evident.

The words we plant when speaking to others grow with them. They take root.

Make sure you’re planting seeds worth reaping. 🌱

“Life and death are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭18:21‬ ‭HCSB‬‬
