Scripture & a Snapshot!
Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.
Proverbs 18:21 nasb
There are lots of Bible verses pertaining to fruit. But since we studied Proverbs 18 last Sunday at church, this verse instantly came to mind. Our teaching elder explained that the it refers to the words we are speaking. There is a connotation that we can love our words more than understanding what we're saying, bringing all sorts of problems, strife, yes, even death. But, there is also the connotation that if we speak wisely, our words can bring life, and healing, and comfort, and encouragement.
I posted this verse along with my pear--yum, yum--because I want the words of my tongue to be sweet, wise, and nourishing to others.
Living life; capturing life.
