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 have to confess, I am guilty of not holding my tongue. I find that is one of the hardest things for me to do. I am asking the readers of this Daily Devotional to please pray for me. I have found I can not do this alone. I want my religious life to be pleasing to GOD and to Glorifying to Him. Thank You

    Thank you for sharing a positive word of encouragement that guides all to think before one speaks. I plan, as always, to ponder these words of truth and practice them through out this day and days to come. Hopefully my efforts through God’s help will have a positive impact in my life and the life of others.

    This is so true, most of us have opinions on many topics. Often , we speak before we think. Once spoken, it is nearly impossible to undo the permanent damage a careless statement can have. Think first.

    My prayers are for wisdom & patience to recognize situations, to stay quiet, so the Holy Spirit can work to guide me, instead of loosing control of myself.
