From Series: Wise Words

Proverbs 13:3  (ID: 2281)

When a powerful tool can either heal or harm, we must be careful in how we use it. Scripture shows us our choice of words is just such a tool. Examining this power, Alistair Begg explains the effect of words to divide and destroy—or, conversely, to restore and to calm. He also cautions against the empty use of religious jargon to mask a lack of devotion. In our use of words, we offer evidence of where we stand before God.


3Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life;

he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.
