Put Your Tongue to Good Use!

How will you use your tongue today?  “Haven’t really given it much thought,” you say.    You should!  Our tongues can be improperly used in a number of negative ways.  A person’s tongue can be used to incite anger (Proverbs 15:1), speak lies (Ephesians 4:25), violate atonguenother person’s trust (Proverbs 11:13), or participate in gossip (I Timothy 5:13).

Thankfully, our tongues can also be used for good.  We can use our tongues to speak the truth or tell others of our faith (Romans 10:9-10), honor God (Hebrews 13:15), encourage others (Ephesians 4:29), and spread God’s word (Psalm 119:172).

No wonder James said we are to be slow to speak (James 1:19).  How will you use your tongue today?  Give some thought!
