A little background to this work:
This was inspired while reading the Psalms. One author talks about seeing wicked people still enjoy good things even though they had no self-control, and one translation of Psalm 73 said ‘They boast against the very heavens, and their words strut throughout the earth’
It got me thinking about how we use our words and the way we often overtalk or gossip. They say the power of life and death is in the tongue, and I think there’s truth in that. We speak things to power. We can speak life or deliver crushing sorrow with our words. So, should our tongues roam the earth? Or should they be on a leash?
