Matthew 8:5-8, 10
Jesus Heals a Centurion’s Servant
5 Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him,
6 saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.”
7 And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.”
8 The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed…
10 When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!
THE WORDS WE SPEAK
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.
Whoever guards his mouth and tongue Keeps his soul from troubles.
You offspring of vipers! How can you speak good things when you are evil (wicked)? For out of the fullness (the overflow, the super-abundance) of the heart the mouth speaks.
