I believe the fruit that the Lord is talking about here is the fruit of my mouth : What am I saying ? I ask myself : Am I speaking words of life to an individual and myself so that it will turn them to the Lord Jesus or negative words that bring death and destruction. Life and death is in the power of the tongue. It is the wisdom of God to bring forth life and healing to a lost and dying world and to our fellow believers and myself. And ourselves. My tongue controls my ship where I want it to go !!!

The Basic English Bible translation is jarringly different from the other translations, and in my opinion, wrong how does it get "violent behaviour takes away souls " from "he that winneth souls is wise "? Compare with all of the other translations. Where did the violence them come from? How could Basic turn a basically evangelic verse into such a negative expression?

Proverbs 11 30 Inspiration for soul winning straight from the Bible Amen I don t want to be foolish I want to be wise Proverbs 4 7 Wisdom is the principal thing therefore get wisdom If we have wisdom we have everything If we have wisdom there is no need for material posessions because truth is better than anything in this world I may not have a Ph D but I have wisdom Amen I don t need a Ph D in order to be wise I don t need cars to be wise I don t need money to be wise I just need to win souls for Jesus Amen
