I said what?

“but no one can tame the tongue. It is wild and full of deadly poison”

James 3:8 (New Century Version)

What we say is very important in God’s eyes. If we are critical, gossip, crude and degrade with our tongue, God says (James 3:6) our whole inner person erodes. We ultimately can’t do anything about this problem except to allow Him to work in us.

The solution is to;  -continually catch ourselves when we say something wrong

-immediately confess it

-ask Him to change us

If you do this, you will feel the joy, peace and blessing.


Heavenly Father, give me the ears to hear myself talk. I hand this area of my life over to You. “I can’t do this, but You can”! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
