Gentle words are a tree of life

Good Morning Sunday Readers-

Today’s Bible verses is all about how we say something . Words can be -words of encouragement are harsh and hard. So as your Mother would say – Watch your words… Lisa

Proverb 15 : 1-4

1A gentle answer deflects anger,but harsh words make tempers flare.

2The tongue of the wise makes knowledge appealing,but the mouth of a fool belches out foolishness

.3The Lord is watching everywhere,keeping his eye on both the evil and the good.

4 Gentle words are a tree of life;a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.

a. A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: Good words are like a tree that continually brings life from its shade and fruit. Our words have the power to do far more good than we often think.

b. Perverseness in it breaks the spirit: If someone’s tongue is perverse (twisted, crooked, corrupt) instead of wholesome, their words will break the spirit of others. Our words have the power to do far more harm than we often think.

Today I am using my new metallic water color paint from Hobby Lobby to color this tree of life. and on my card bellow. I love the effects yoou can get with watercolors from light to dark…. Lisa

My Card:

A soft answer turns away wrath: When people come to us in wrath, we are often tempted to be harsh in response. Wisdom shows us the value of a softanswer, one without sharp edges or points. That kind of answer can actually turn away wrath.
