Life and Death are in the Hands of the Tongue

מָוֶת וְחַיִּים בְּיַד לָשׁוֹן lit trans: "Life and Death are in the Hands of the Tongue"- Mishlei.

Speech has both the power to bring about death and/or bring about life. Notice how this pasuk uses the term "in the HANDS" It is amazing how relevant this term is for our days - Today Lashon Hara (bad mouthing, slander, gossip, etc) can be done easily using our Hands. (i.e., via chat, status updates, tweets, blogs, etc) Suggestion: Always think twice before clicking send.
