Season 4: Mind Your Tongue Part 2: What Fruit Are You Serving?

2019 is all about being intentional, especially with the words I choose to use to create my reality. I am so tired of the little deaths I’ve been speaking over my life that create their own realities of self-hate, disappointment, anger and unhappiness. Proverbs 18:21 says that, “death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit”. In order for me to create a reality that is filled with life, then I must speak it.

Part II, “What Fruit are You Serving?” is all about how what we say about others draws either negative or positive energy back to us. We can either serve judgement, gossip and condemnation, or we can serve the Fruit of the Spirit of love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
