We seem to think that we can say, whatever we what. Why? Because we’re grown and no one is the boss of us. Think again. Our Father hears and see everything we say and do. We are to honor God with our actions, our attitude, and what we say.
We can tell someone we love them one minute, and with the same mouth, tearing them down with words of cursing, hate, and destruction. It happens so often, it has lost it’s sting of consciousness. James 3:10 (KJV) – out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
Be quick to listen, not quick to speak. You never know the damage and life-long affect you have on someone because of the harsh words you spoke. James 1:19 (KJV) – wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.
Learn to watch your mouth, and see the difference. You can’t lose doing the right thing!
