It isn’t what we communicate about that shapes a healthy relational climate as much as how we speak and act toward one another. The book of Proverbs forcefully states that both life and death reside in the tongue (18:21). How can we speak both life and health into our relationships within a culture that promotes unhealthy and abusive forms of interaction?
