One of the most powerful and useful things we possess, is our tongue. The tongue can bring praise and encouragement to the most discouraged person. The tongue expresses love through kind speech…and peace…sometimes through no speech at all. What we say can impact a person or situation forever. God desires for us to use our gift of speech to the best of our ability. Sometimes God wants us to give our testimony of things we have been able to overcome. Many times people see our character through the way we speak. Be careful how you use the tongue…it is a dangerous and destructive thing if used in the wrong way. Make every effort to exemplify God, through positive and gracious words.

When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise. PROVERBS 10:19.
My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak ad slow to become angry, for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.
Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. JAMES 3:5.
God is with us.
