Text: Proverbs 18:21

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.” (Proverbs 18:21 NKJV)

The tongue is one among the smallest portions of the whole human body, but its functions are unique.
The tongue is one among the five human senses; it best expresses the whole thought in the mind of a person.

The Bible says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue” – this is true, because when you consider all things you will realize that the tongue is the strongest weapon of any human being.


  1. Spoken words can heal the mind faster and better than drugs does to the body; and when the mind is healed, the spirit is awakened and the body is quickened.
  2. The tongue can set an unquenchable fire of war among people when roughly used to cause trouble.
  3. The tongue is the fastest defensive device of any person or people.
  4. The tongue is the mightiest thing that nature respects and responds to, etc.

And it is said that, “Those who love it will eat its fruit”.

What is the fruit of the tongue?

The fruit of the tongue is the benefit of its function which is sourced from the power in the tongue.
Whatever you believe in your heart that is what you speak with your tongue, and whatever you say is what you will get.

Healing, peace, love, joy, hope, justice, faith, wisdom and life are buried in the tongue; moreover, hurt, pain, insult, folly, trouble and death are buried in the tongue: It is now in your power as a human being to either dig out the good or the bad in the tongue. Dare always to use the tongue aright…

God bless you more.
