Nitroglycerin is a fascinating product. It is a liquid compound. It can kill or it can heal.
It is a primary component of dynamite and explosives. Alfred Nobel used it in the creation of dynamite and armaments.
At the same time, nitroglycerin can heal. Doctors discovered that it is a vasodilator. It is used to dilate the vascular system and is used for heart conditions. Heart patients can ingest a pill and the effect can be life-saving.
That’s crazy isn’t it? The same thing can either kill or heal.
The tongue is like that. Proverbs 18:21 makes this truth clear: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.”
Over 150 times Proverbs refers to our lips, our mouth, and our tongue. Proverbs may have more to say about our words than about any other subject. It gives us God’s counsel on communication--His wisdom for our words.
