I Peter 3:10-12 (NLT):
For the Scriptures say, "If you want a happy life and good days, keep your tongue from speaking evil, and keep your lips from telling lies. Turn away from evil and do good. Work hard at living in peace with others. The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right, and his ears are open to their prayers. But the Lord turns his face against those who do evil."
The tongue is one of or the hardest part of the body to get under control. James 3:8 puts it this way: “But the human tongue can be tamed by no man. It is restless (undisciplined, irreconcilable) evil, full of deadly poison.”
Lord, help me tame my tongue. Let only good & wholesome things come out of me that will build someone up today and every day. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen!
