Being that we are made in the image of God, our words carry some of the creative as well as destructive power of Adonai. Solomon wrote: "Death and Life are in the power of the tongue" and those who love to use the tongue will bear the fruit of it, whether good or bad. Even Yeshua said that on the day of judgment people will be required to give account for every careless word. Once a word leaves our lips it is unrecoverable, and its power to bless or curse continues. We must never take lightly the things we say, but rather plead with the Lord, as David did, to guard the door of our lips!
