Proverbs 18:21 Daily Devotional

“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”

Proverbs‬ ‭18:21

The tongue is capable of either life or death, and it appears we get to choose. Whichever we choose is the fruit (or result) we get.

Proverbs 18:21 Devotional Applications:

Choose life. Encourage others, pray to the Lord, and sing to God. These are all great ways to choose to use your tongue for life rather than death. A tongue that uses the power of death would gossip, discourage and demean, and betray. I know I don’t want those characteristics tied to my name.


Help me choose to use my tongue to bring life. Give me your ability to see and call out the best in other people. When my mind and tongue start drifting toward spewing death, grant me the strength to continue providing life. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
