Stuff Better Not Said

Oh my, stuff comes out of my mouth on the fly. Are you like me? Have you said stuff better not said?

Temper, irritability sadness, any kind of emotion can trigger that mouth of mine. I hope you have better control of yours. Mine seems to live a path of its own. Oh, the stuff I wish I could take back forever.

And you; is that you too? I read verses in the Bible that comfort me but then frighten me…oh to walk the road of Jesus with that carefully measured mouth that said what needed to be said and no more.

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. (Ephesians 4:29 NIV)

The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.(James 3:6, NIV)

Prayer- Oh God help us control our tongues and use them to glorify you, not ourselves, to encourage others and not run them down. Amen.
