This is something I have struggled with for many years. I have read so many times in God’s Word that I should watch what I say, listen before speaking, speak with wisdom and so many other lessons. Why hasn’t this seemingly simple virtue called “Tame Your Tongue” healed itself on its own? When I’m critical about something or someone, I feel that I look to others as a negative and critical person.
But I’m saved! Aren’t I supposed to show others Christ’s love by my actions and words? This is not an easy task, and I don’t know about you but I fail every day at this.
So, I am on a journey to try and have more self-control with my words and be a more positive person. My hope is to be a brighter light and better witness to the grace of God and his hand in my life. I pray that God will bless this journey that I am on and if you join me I pray for blessings for you as well. In this study learn how you can Tame Your Tongue and why it’s so important!
I started out by finding several verses about how to tame your tongue in my bible. After reading, rewriting, looking for common themes and opposites, I compiled a list of positive and negative attributes. Taking a closer look at these items really helped cement them into my heart, and to be more disciplined during my days.
I hope taking an inventory of the patterns as an overview will make you hunger for the positive list to come forth in your life. Also, it will give you the desire to rid the negative list from your life. For our words are a tool!
