James 3:9 “With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness.” We have a decision to make right now! Our tongue can be a destructive weapon for tearing down or a powerful tool for building up! I cannot control your tongue! The truth is: I have a big enough battle with my own! And if we are all honest, we would have to admit that we all have a very big battle that we need to engage in with our own tongue!
Be careful how you use you tongue! Take some time today to listen to the conversations that are going on all around you. Are the people that are talking – using their tongues to build up or tear down? Don’t judge other people or their conversations – this is not your focus today!
Now take some time today to listen to your own conversations: Is your tongue building up or tearing down? Try to discipline your tongue to build up! You will become a much more popular person – other people will actually want to listen to what you have to say. God will be glorified and He deserves to be with our speech and actions. And you will be blessed – more than you realize!
