The Power of Life and Death


The power of life and death is in the tongue. (Prov 18:21)

If a child says, "When I grow up, I'm going to live in the ocean and grow long rabbit ears to propel myself around" do you respond "Wow! That sounds exciting! Tell me more!" or "Don't be silly. You can't breathe under water. ..."

If a child says, "I want to be a teacher when I grow up" do you say "Really? What subject would you most like to teach?" or "They're a dime a dozen. You'll always be broke."

Which response gives LIFE to the dream?

Which response KILLS it?

Whose dream will you encourage today?
