Why is it so easy for us to just say whatever we’re thinking? Where does that come from?
The Bible is pretty clear about the fact that one day we will be held accountable for the things that we just let roll off of our tongues.
Matthew 12:36 – But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken.
Romans 14:12 – So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.
Even though I know this, I still have a hard time controlling my mouth. I allow my feelings to justify my behavior.
I have such a strong desire to learn how to control even my feelings. I’ve seen the destruction that giving into them can create.
There is true POWER behind your words.
Proverbs 18:21 -The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
Oh Lord, show me how to overcome my thoughts and feelings today. Teach me how to speak words with life and healing to those around me. Open my eyes to where I can change. Remove my selfish desires so that I can speak words of influence to the ones you have entrusted me with. May I not be moved by any circumstance with my emotion.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen
