Tongues Are Powerful – Christians Use Them Cautiously
(Passage: James 3)
Human tongue can make a huge impact in the lives of others. Christians are warned to be cautious of the use of our tongues so that it can bless people, and glorify his name.
The bible declared,
“For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so” (James 3:7-10 NKJV).
Tongues Can Make Or Break Lives
Christians must be careful with the use of our tongues since words carry weight to either make or break a life. Words can demoralize people, and it can encourage them! We (Christians) must use our tongues to build lives to honor God. We must be sensitive to use our tongues to teach people about God’s law. It is important that we use our tongues to encourage people to reserve their faith in Jesus Christ so that God can save them and qualify them for heaven. Jehovah will surely bless people who make him proud with the use of their tongues! He will honor them in this life and in heaven also.
Prayer To Maintain Decency With Tongue Usage
Dear God, please give me grace to adequately utilize my tongue to bless people so that your name can be glorified. Help me to not abuse your grace of free speech that I have. Do not let me tear other people down with my tongue, but let my words be full of grace to bless them! Please let your blessing pursue me as I desire to satisfy you everyday of my life. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
