A good word -
we live in a world
of words
they make things clear
or confusing
they are helpful
or hurtful

a perverse tongue
a lying tongue
a slandering tongue
a gossiping tongue
a flattering tongue
will break down relationships
causing depression and anxiety

a righteous tongue
a restoring tongue
a restrained tongue
will build up relationships
and create a glad heart -
speech that builds up
begins with receiving Christ

Prompt verse:
"Anxiety in the heart of man weighs it down, but a good word makes it glad." Proverbs 12:25
