Taming The Tongue
by Wayne Blank
A few apt words can change a sad expression to a happy one. What a joy it is to see someone cheered up by truthful encouragement. Words have great healing power.
Words are like water. They can be a pure spring of life-giving substance, or they can be a septic tank of contamination.
How we speak is a good indication of the state of our Christianity. Profanity and coarse talk have no place in the life of a Christian. Although never easy, and much more difficult for some of us, controlling the tongue may be one of the most important keys to happiness and success.
