The Taming of the Tongue
In the human body, there is a little two-ounce slab of muscle called the tongue that is packed with power, either for good or evil. The tongue has the power to bless or curse, to build up or burn down, to bring life or usher in death ... so we must be extremely careful how we use it. Proverbs 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Have you been careful or careless with your tongue lately? Have you been using your tongue for good or for evil? How about with yourself? Have you been beating yourself down with negative self-talk, saying things like "I'm no good." God doesn't love me. My future is never going to get any better." Listen, bring your tongue to the altar, and surrender it to the Lord! Determine from this day forward to use your tongue to bring honor to God and healing to yourself and others. You will be amazed at the difference that act will make in your life and in the lives of others as you use your tongue to bring share REAL HOPE!
