The Power of the Tongue
Brian Barcelona preaches about how our words have more power than we often give them credit for and that we are God's mouthpieces. We are reminded that since we were created in the image of God, our words have the ability to bring life or death to every day situations. Somebody contemplating suicide could experience the storm-calming peace of God through our choice to speak life. Since our words have this weight of earthly and eternal effects, we are urged to tame our tongues. It is hard for people to see the heart of God, if our words don't carry His purity and truth.
