You Can Control Your Speech
“If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.” - James 1:26
We must watch what we say, because one word builds upon another, and it can get worse and worse. You have the snowball effect.
You say, “Well, I can't control it.” You're a liar! You can control it, and I can prove it. For example, sometimes in a home a husband and wife are just snarling, fighting, snapping down one another's throat. Their voices are full of hostility. Then right in the middle of that kind of an argument, the phone rings. They answer the phone and say so sweet and nicely, “H-e-l-l-o…”
You can control it. And you'd better learn to control it. If you don't, you're going to be out of control.
This week, memorize Proverbs 29:20: “Do you see a man hasty in his words? There is more hope for a fool than for him.”
