Use Your Tongue Profitably.
“Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold how great a matter a little fire kindleth!” James 3:5
Words are very powerful. They can make or mar. There are cases of people with great potentials who have missed it in life because of negative words spoken to them while those who never had anything good going for them made it in life because someone spoke positive words to them.
Before you allow those words come out of your mouth, realize that you are either edifying someone or destroying someone with your mouth. Many times people use very bad words and then turn around and claim to be joking. Beloved, you are a child of the King and where the word of the King is there is power. Why say the wrong things?
Proverbs 13:3 gives a very simple but vital instruction I summarized it to mean – Guard your lips and save a soul. God did not make an architectural error by giving you two ears and only one mouth. Your two ears and one mouth suggest that you should do more of listening than talking. James 3 tells us that the tongue is like fire that requires taming. There must be conscious effort to guard your tongue. You must not be in the company of those who say anything and everything without weighing the consequences. Only fools speak before thinking. Don’t tear people down with your words rather edify and minister grace to your hearer.
Let us be examples of believers in our speech. We should not join others in useless or unwholesome talks. Your tongue should not be used in praising God and at the same time speaking words that will not edify. Say nice things and learn to listen. Guard your soul today as you bridle your tongue.
