For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.
Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.
Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
Have you ever noticed while reading the Bible that God thought of everything? I am continually amazed at this fact. Jehovah did not allow one thing in His Word without good reason. Science is even catching up to this...how exciting! Here are a few tidbits to ponder before moving on:
- The word "word(s)" is found 1179 times int he KJV
- The word "mouth(s)" is found 415 times in the KJV
- The word "spoken" is found 280 times in the KJV
- The word "thought(s)" is found 134 times in the KJV
- The word "speech" is found 58 times in the KJV
Here is a quick run through on the water percentages in the human body (just a refresher):
"Up to 60% of the human body is water, the brain is composed of 70% water, and the lungs are nearly 90% water. Lean muscle tissue contains about 75% water by weight, as is the brain; body fat contains 10% water and bone has 22% water. About 83% of our blood is water, which helps digest our food, transport waste, and control body temperature. Each day humans must replace 2.4 litres of water, some through drinking and the rest taken by the body from the foods eaten."
Our words, our thoughts, our choice of what we listen to affects water molecules. Think for a moment. If your brain is composed of nearly 70% water, what are your words and thoughts doing to your brain? Dr. Masaru Emoto discovered just how much words and thoughts can affect water. Beautiful words, thoughts, music and prayer produce beautiful crystals that resemble snowflakes. However, ugly words, thoughts, or music distorts the water molecule into something chaotic and ugly.
This is very interesting to think about. The book of James in the Bible talks alot about our words and our speech and taming the tongue. Apparently there is a reason God had these principles written and it goes far beyond "feelings." This is a wonderful study to go through as a family. We all want our children to speak nicely and think positive thoughts, but for our more "logical" or "analytical" children, the science behind why we do what we do may have more of an impact than merely saying, "Because I told you so."
As with everything we study, we must measure it to the Word of God. People will try and take God out of Science but you simply cannot take the Creator out of His Creation. There is plenty on the subject of our thoughts and words in the amazing Word of God, I would suggest starting with the book of James and then working your way out from there.
As always, I am interested to know what you think! Do you agree or disagree with this study by Dr. Emoto and why? Please leave your comments below and of course, if you have links or videos to add relevant to this topic, please share them!
