James 3:7-10

Every sea creature, reptile, bird, or animal is tamed and has been tamed by man, but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. We praise our Lord and Father with it, and we curse men who are made in God’s likeness with it. Praising and cursing come out of the same mouth. My brothers, these things should not be this way. James 3:7-10 HCSB

Our tongue is the most vicious of weapons; our words can be the tools of the devil, stealing, killing, and destroying; or the tools of God, glorifying, edifying, building up our fellow brothers and sisters. We must learn to control our tongue since it controls who we are. I pray that our Heavenly Father bestows upon us the gift of control over our tongue, the wisdom to know how to use it for His sake, the knowledge of what to say and when. As we our children of God I pray this, amen.
