Character, Conduct & Conversation
Part 3
The Tongue
Is it your tool of construction or destruction?
Are your words poison or medicine?
Self controlled or uncontrolled?

The Power of the Tongue:
Careless words, swear words, evil words. The stories we tell, little white lies and big ones too! Boasting, gossip, words delivered in anger, slander, etc.
For my Christian followers out there, chew on this.

James 1:26: “If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless.”

What comes out of your mouth matters to God and it reveals your spiritual maturity.

For those of you that haven’t received Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord, these Biblical truths can still help you with your conversation but……The ultimate is when you have the Holy Spirit living in you through a relationship with Jesus that gives power to do what the Bible reveals and He will also transforms your tongue!

James 3:8 says: “But no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil full of deadly poison.”

This verse tells us how much we need God’s help to conquer our words. We might advance two steps forward in our own strength and determination but again, the ultimate is through our relationship with the God that made us and our daily following and dependence on Him. He starts at the core. He works on your insides (character, heart & soul) which affects your outsides (conduct & conversation). Jesus can tame your tongue. Get it? Want it?
