Sometimes emotions can get the best of us and cause us to say words we don’t truly mean. When you get so overwhelmed in emotions, you don’t think before you speak causing hurt to someone. The Bible tells us to “be slow to anger.” The tongue is our most deadly weapon, we cut people down with it, we gossip with it, we say hurtful things to others with it. We can hurt so many with our tongues.
We cannot allow our fleshy emotions to hinder our spiritual influence. People will hurt us, make us so angry we want to scream, but we have to “bite our tongues.” As the saying goes “if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.” Use your tongue to speak love! Speak truth, life and hope into someone’s life with it. Pray for someone with it. Don’t allow the enemy to take your emotions and use them for his gain. Use your weapon for good. Speak truth! Xoxo
“The one who guards his mouth and tongue keeps himself out of trouble.”
Proverbs 21:23 CSB
