Daily scripture and thoughts


And the tongue is a fire, a world of unrighteousness. The tongue is set among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the entire course of life, and set on fire by hell. For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and sea creature, can be tamed and has been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. (James 3:6-10 ESV)

Dear Ones

Our tongue is such a powerful member of our body. It can be used to build or tear down, it can be used to bring happiness to a heart or pain. As people of Christ we must remember that we will give an account for every word spoken ( I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” (Matthew 12:36, 37 ESV)  That is so scary to me-- I will give an account for every careless thing I say.

Be careful with what you say in anger, be careful with what you say when you are offended, be careful with what you say about brothers and sisters in Christ, be careful!!! 

Tame that tongue!!! I know that I do not want to stand before my Lord some day in judgement over my uncontrolled tongue!!! This Word has been given to us so we might heed it, because the day is now... Now we are to change. We are also accountable for the truth hear and not live within our lives.

Dear Ones we never have a good reason to degrate or defile someone with our words. We are truly able to be kind and loving. We are truly able to submit ourselves to be glorifying to our Lord because that is the power we hold within us through the presence of the Holy Spirit. If you have not been able to tame your tongue if you spend time speaking ill of people, and the church. If it is always wagging about someone in gossip then you have to wonder how much of the Holy Spirit lives within you. 

Let me challenge you- for every moment that you have to destroy someone with your Words use that moment to lift them in prayer. Jesus loved the sinner... To the point where he would pray for them -- do you remember what He said on the cross? 

" Lord forgive them for they know not what they do."

Are we not to love them the same? Should we not take that time that we are speaking ill or desiring to speak ill to pray for their souls if they are nonbelievers?? If they are believers I warn you even more greatly because as an earthly father who loves his child and would do anything for him, so does our Heavenly Father love His children, so be careful what you say about His children for you will stand before Him some day.

Lord forgive us for where we fail you! 

Take Heed.....
