Keep repeating the Words of the Bible & they’ll give you life. They’re God’s Words so they keep making life, recreating.
But when you repeat gossip it might not be true & there’s no life in it. The story keeps the person or circumstance in the same position & there’s no vision or change. Mind your words to be life-giving. Refuse to repeat stories that are death-giving. (Is it true, is it kind, is it edifying?)
The power of life & death are on the tongues, Prov 18:21
I give you abundant life, says Jesus in John 10:10
How sweet are Your Words to my taste! Psalm 119:103
