"But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." Joshua 24:15

The Tongue

The Tongue is Powerful

Here is another graphic I wanted to share with you I saw on Facebook.

The TONGUE has no bones but is strong enough to break a heart. So be careful with your words.

You may want to look at this blog post: Before You Speak Think Acronym  For more information about thinking and taming your speech.

Also did you know that Proverbs 25:15 talks about the tongue breaking a bone? See the verse below.

By long forbearance a ruler is persuaded,
And a gentle tongue breaks a bone.

Here is another verse for you. Proverbs 13:3

He who guards his mouth preserves his life,
But he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction.

Here is another verse for you. Proverbs 21:23

Whoever guards his mouth and tongue
Keeps his soul from troubles.

There are many, many more scripture talking about the tongue.

We must be careful and wise in what we say. Once we say what we said, we cannot take it back.

Did you know there are 31 Chapters in the Book of Proverbs. That is enough to read one chapter per day for 31 days. Check out the 31 Day Proverb Challenge.

    Thanks for highlighting these scriptures. We often forget how powerful, damaging, and painful our words can be.

  4. Good reminders of the power of the tongue

  5. Thanks Mary Collins I saw the graphic and had to share on the blog.

  6. You are very right. We often speak without thinking. I have a link to acronym to Think in this blog post. Thanks for the comment.
