Proverbs 18:20-21 (KJV) The Arts of Writing and Speaking

Proverbs 18:20-21 (KJV)
A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
It is a truth that those who earn their keep with their words always earn a better keep than those who do the same with their hands.
Washington, Jefferson and Madison all claimed to be first and foremost, farmers, but they made their marks in the world not through the crops they raised but by the ideas they put forth. Abraham Lincoln was raised to greatness not through his ability to split a log but by his practiced use of the spoken word. One of the most important things a man can do is learn to speak well.
The tongue has more value however than just the raising of wealth and greatness but also of eternal matters. Better than the satisfaction of earning a good living or doing our generation good is to make a mark for eternity. That’s done best with our tongues.
So my appeal is for people to be more:
  • Conscious
  • Determined and 
  • Practiced 
in the arts of writing and speaking.
