Good Monday Morning!
I have a question for you this morning. How are your tongues? No really. How are they? No, I’m not asking the state of your tongue. I’m not asking if you remembered to brush your tongue when you brushed your teeth this morning. I’m asking about your tongue as a tool — do you control your tongue?
I’ve been reading through the Proverbs and thinking about words and tongues. Goodness! is there a lot of references to tongues! (these are just a few that have been on my mind lately):
There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword (ouch!!), but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
Proverbs 12:18 (NASB)
The one who guards his mouth preserves his life; The one who opens wide his lips comes to ruin. Proverbs 13:3 (NASB)
As we go throughout this week, let’s make sure we are guarding our tongues. Let’s not be like thrusts of a sword (which if you think about getting thrust with a sword it would be very painful), but let’s guard our mouth and words.
Blessings, Pearl Girls.
