Tame Your Tongue

The problems of the world could be solved overnight if men could get victory over their tongues. Suppose there was no anger, no profanity, no lying, no grumbling or complaining; suppose there were no dirty stories told, no unjust criticism—what a different world this would be! The Bible teaches that a man who can control his tongue can control his whole personality. We should ask ourselves three questions before we speak: Is it true? Is it kind? Does it glorify Christ? If we would always think before we speak, there would be much less evil speaking, and there would soon be a spiritual awakening that would sweep the church in America.

Prayer for the day

May I remember how important it is to keep a check on my tongue. I pray that my conversation this day will be pleasing in Your sight, Lord.

    My sister shared this with me, and I in turn have shared with many others. It truly spoke volumes to me.

    Continued from previous post. I felt a lot better when I called her back and knowing what the Holy Spirit was nudging me about. I didn’t mean to sound bad and I knew I did. Sometimes as a Christian we have to be reminded of the things we do daily and try and do better for ourselves and to glorify God. I was just taught a good lesson on how to do things better when I talk to someone.

    As I was calling a job I had about workmans comp and this is after receiving bill 5 months later, I called the job I had and wanted to know why things hadn’t been taken care of…I was rude talking to the girl and she had no clue because the boss I had that was taking care of all of this retired and left things undone. Not only was this about the bills, but I wanted to know why they hadn’t called me back to work. After talking like I did she called me back and told me she was checking in to everything and we hung up. I sat here thinking how bad I talked to her and knowing as a Christian I had to call her back and apologize. It wasn’t her fault things went wrong. Then I seen this post of the tongue and had to comment.

    Amen! May I remind myself of this daily!

    I humbly request much prayer for me to bridle my tongue, my most unruly member. I am not rampant with it, but a little leaven leavens the whole loaf.
