Are Your Words Spoken in Season?

Words can comfort or they can wound. They can encourage or they can discourage. They can promote love or they can spew hate. They can be bridges to change or they can be deterrents to emotional and spiritual growth. They can be kind, and they can be abusive. How do the words you say affect others?

Proverbs 18:21
New King James Version (NKJV)

21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Proverbs 15:23
New King James Version (NKJV)

23 A man has joy by the answer of his mouth,
And a word spoken in due season, how good it is!

Isaiah 50:4
New King James Version (NKJV)

4 “The Lord God has given Me
The tongue of the learned,
That I should know how to speak
A word in season to him who is weary.
He awakens Me morning by morning,
He awakens My ear
To hear as the learned.
