Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Proverbs 18:21 (KJV)
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
Proverbs 25:11 (KJV)
To the tender-hearted soul, words can become
swords of great destruction. While joys, tender
kindness, an encouraging word, and Christ-centered
friendships can become Heavenly mountaintops of
refreshing like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
And in reality are not all precious souls tender-hearted?
