Scripture: James 3:3
“We all make many mistakes, but those who control their tongues can also control themselves in every other way.”
Yes! We are human beings and that means we are full of flaws. But that isn’t something to take advantage of to intentionally make mistakes so you can slam the saying, “after all I’m human and I’m bound to make mistakes” on the faces of well wishers.
The human tongue, most times is underestimated because of its size but it carries so much weight than we can imagine!
A tiny rudder makes a huge ship or plane turn wherever the pilot wants it to go, even though the winds are strong.
So also, the tongue is a small thing, but what enormous damage it can do! It is a tiny spark that can set a great forest on fire.
Despite the strong winds blowing in your life you must make a firm decision to turn your rudder (the tongue) in the right direction because you are the one in charge! You are the pilot of your life.
Turning it in the wrong direction has the ability to turn the entire course of your life and that of others into a blazing flame of destruction, for it is set on fire by hell itself!
Is it not amazing, how blessings and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth.
One moment the tongue praises the Lord and the next moment it is found raining curses upon the creation of the same Creator it praised few moments ago.
That ain’t right!
But the truth is the tongue only brings out what it finds within.
What comes out through our mouth is as a result of what we’ve fed our system with.
But to be able to live a good life pouring forth only good deeds you must learn first to
Control your tongue and once you achieve success in that, you can also control yourselves in every other way.
All this is possible to achieve once you let God lead the way.
Father Lord thank you for today, today I promise to control my tongue and turn it in the right direction no matter how much I’m provoked so help me Hod in Jesus name, amen.
