An Unbridled Tongue

JULY 29, 2020


DAILY PROVERBS:

Proverbs 18:20-24 A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD. The poor useth intreaties; but the rich answereth roughly. A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.


OUTLOOK ON THE IN BOOK:

   I remember hearing as a boy, “that mouth of yours is going to get you into trouble someday.” Today’s passages ring of that very statement. For whether it is for good or bad, a person will have to live with what they have said. Once the words tumble from between your lips, no matter how hard you may try, you can never take them back. Hurtful, slanderous words will cut like a knife to the very heart of another person.  

    Some people try to gain popularity and friends with fine words and glamorous speeches. However, if their life does not match their statements, it often becomes their downfall. .

    It seems easier to forgive, and yes, even forget a physical punishment faster and easier than a verbal abuse. The reason is that Satan will continue to replay those words in your mind until they become like a recording playing over and over every time you see the person who said them.

    In the book of James, it was written that the tongue is a hard thing to tame. In James 3:6 it says, “And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.”

    Oh, how careful we need to be of what we say. We need to pray that God will help us bridle our tongue. That the words we speak may be meaningful, and that each one would be spoken with love for one another.


THE WORD WALKING IN ME:

    In Psalms 19:14 it says, “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.” Who could say it any better than that?
