James 3:2 We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.
Mathew 12:34-26 (Summary) Jesus reminds us that what we say reveals what is in our hearts. What kinds of words come from your mouth? That is an indication of what your heart is really like. You can't solve your heart problem, however, just by cleaning up your speech. You must allow the Holy Spirit to fill you with New Attitudes and Motives; then your speech will be cleaned at its source.
Hello Shawn. Good message! It was timely. It is so important to be careful that what we say can affect others very deeply. Thanks for the reminder.
This was such a confirming word. Proverbs 18:20-21are my hallmark scriptures for my business and life. I have also been meditating James 3:2-12 regarding the tongue. I am extremely cognizant to speak life to and over others as well as myself. I also encourage other people to guard what they say even in jesting because words are spiritual and will still produce fruit accordingly. I always think what would I want someone to say or pray regarding me before I speak. If someone speaks words to me that are negative or contrary to what I believe, I correct them and explain why. One of the biggest lies that we recited in our childhood was "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me". Not only can words hurt, they can kill. They can wound a heart to the point of grief and despair. That is what an aspect of bullying is and we have seen young people take their lives over hurtful, malicious words. Thank God, Jesus came to heal the broken hearted and has given us the power of our tongue to speak life, health, and strength over our lives. Thanks for sharing.
