OUR WORDS ARE POWERFUL…
"Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble." Proverb 21:23
Just experienced something that had to be devastating for
someone we know.Ever composted
and email to go to a friend and in it’s contents it had something about someone
else that was private information? When you sent it you later find out it went
to all your mailing list including the person you talked about to your
friend?I hope you can answer
“NO”!!! My heart skipped when I got this email and I knew it would not be long
until we got another one with apologies and we did she was very sorry!!!
James has a lot to say about our tongue in James 3:1-18.When you get a chance read it for
yourself you might have already, but go back a review again it to see the power of the
How can you become a person who does not sin
with your tongue?
• humble yourself • put
off all slander and evil speaking • put
on words of kindness, love, forgiveness, and grace • bring
your thought life under the control of the Spirit • talk
• think before you speak
• refuse to listen to, slander, or gossip about others
Don’t you think it would be a good thing to live by this
following verse also, when it comes to our tongue?It would keep us out of trouble and keep us from what our
friend had to face to clean up her mistake…..
"Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear." Ephesians 4:29 ESV
Sure as the world we are going to be tested
this week, on this very thing, so lets go have a good and safe week watching
what comes from our mouth!!!...... Just saying.....
"Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is
honorable, whatever is
right, whatever is
pure, whatever is
lovely, whatever is
of good repute, if there is any excellence and anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things."
Philippians 4:8 NASB
