LISTEN NOW! In this moment of wisdom found in Proverbs 12:18, “reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” Greg shares how many people today often speak recklessly without giving much concern to how their words affect others. Usually these are the same people who are harmed by the words spoken by others. Reckless words are damaging and pierce people bringing much harm. Then there are those who are careful with their words and are mindful of what Proverbs says; that life and death are in the tongue.
