Tame Your Tongue

By   •   February 19   •   Topics: ,

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.

      I will pray for you Gwen. Give your struggle to God and He will get you through this.
      Keep saying “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Phil. 4:13.
      This will help you get through each second, minute and hour of the day.
      May God give you peace and strength.

    This is very true. My Sunday school teacher once told me that you can kill someone with your tongue. Tongue a very strong muscle.

  7. fran says:

    This is so true. But when under a great amount of stress I always let my tongue get the best of me! I need to find a way to release my stress rather than letting it come out of my mouth!
