The Importance of Watching Our Tongues (Part II)

It’s 3:05 in the morning as I write this post, I figure since I am awake, I may as well be productive. Humans have coined words for all sorts of expression, to express anger, joy, disgust, and so on.

I wrote previously about the importance of watching our tongues, this is the 2nd installment of those notes.

Scripture doesn’t give us a laundry list of specific words or phrases to avoid, but we are warned to avoid corrupt speech. The term “corrupt speech” covers a lot of ground. Anything from lying to using the Lord’s name in vain is corrupt speech.

A lot of times, people are so flippant, but we ought not be.

Just remember Dear ones, words have power, for good or ill.

The Importance of Watching Our Tongues

We should watch our tongues, we should consider carefully our words, is what I mean.

Are we speaking life, or death? Being constructive or destructive? Administering medicine or poison?

I write this as much to myself as to my readers. I have known people who were so hurt by callous things said to them that they literally took their own lives.

That right there should make you seriously think.

I am not saying walk on eggshells, but use wisdom!
