Your tongue got you in trouble again...?

Has your tongue gotten you in trouble again?
... and it is so easy to talk without thinking!
... and so easy to sin while you are talking!
Therefore God warns us saying ...

Death and life are in the power of the tongue:
and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
---
Prov. 18:21

God tells us that there is power in our tongues ...
Power to affect our lives either positively or negatively ...
... therefore ...
God wants us to use our tongues to speak and receive life ...
God wants us to use our tongues to speak and receive blessings ...
... and not ...
... to use our tongues to speak death and destruction!
!!!
Not only can your tongue get you into trouble ...

but it can hurt and destroy if we don't control it!
And ...
... not only can your tongue hurt others ...
... but it can also hurt and destroy your life!

And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman
whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.
...
And the LORD came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle,
and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth.
...
wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed.
And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold,
Miriam became leprous, white as snow:
and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.

Num. 12:1-10

Miriam spoke against her brother, Moses, God's servant ...
... and her words not only got her into trouble, but nearly killed her!
And the same can happen to us ...
Therefore God encourages us to be like David ...
... who said about his tongue ...

I will guard my ways, Lest I sin with my tongue;
I will restrain my mouth with a muzzle,
---
Psalm 39:1

And praise God ...
... there is also life and blessings for those who guard their tongues ...
... for those who rely on God for wisdom before they speak ...
... for those who let the Holy Spirit give them the words to say ...
As God says to us through James ...

For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word,
the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.
