Have you ever thought back, when you first start speaking words, did you begin speaking the truth, or lies?
No matter how much our parents tried to keep us from lying when we were younger, they couldn’t keep us from lying 100%. But we did learn the consequences when we lied. It either taught us it’s okay to tell a little white-lie, or it put the fear of God in us that we didn’t want to lie.
Now matter how hard you try, know that you can not tame your tongue, only God can do that. But, you do know how to think before you speak, so that you know not to lie.
Ask God to guard your lips, and He will.
James 3:8 (KJV) – but the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
James 1:19 (KJV) – wherefore, my beloved brethren, let ever man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.
Psalm 63:11 (KJV) – but the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory; but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
Psalm 141:3 (KJV) – set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.
