Taming My Tongue



Use you words for good–and say things that build up your family and other people around.

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve regretted something I said, I’d be rich! Hi, I’m Renee Swope with Proverbs 31 Ministries.

In the Bible, James says that “no man (or woman) can tame the tongue.” So, I guess he struggled with mastering that little pink thing inside his mouth, too. That made me feel so much better the other day when I was mean to my son and kinda rude to my husband. I realized I need to stop and ask God to help me think before I speak. You know the good thing is, God also gave us tongues to say kind things – with a gentle tone and patient attitude.

I don’t know about you, but I need to ask God every morning to help me control the words that come out of my mouth. I want to use them for good–and say things that build up my family and other people around.
