Good morning Church family
This morning as I have been researching what it means to be wise in scripture as part of our series on wisdom, I was amused to find many verses referring to the tongue. Here are a few
“Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues.”
“The hearts of the wise make their mouths prudent, and their lips promote instruction.”
James has quite a lot to say on the subject too and this scripture came up for us last night at bible study. “With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring?” James 3:9-11 NIV
Clearly over the next few days I will be praying and asking God to help me in this area of my faith journey. Will you join me? Let’s be wise with our words.
