* The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs 18:21
* For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned Matthew 12:37
* When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise. Proverbs 10:19
* The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. James 3:6
* This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live. Deuteronomy 30:19

When we are frustrated with certain situation how do we handle it? Do we turn to offensive slang taking matters in our own hands OR we tame our tongue and praise the Lord who is able to solve the issues instead?

When a friend talks to us ill of his/her boss, spouse or co worker, what is our response? Are we nodding in agreement, adding fuel to the fire, thus not taming our tongue OR are we setting an example by responding wisely offering to pray over the situation thus ending such conversation?

Do we back bite? Do we rather praise men than God? Do our words constantly hurt someone than heal? Do we bless our children or curse them by our words? Do we boast of ourselves OR share about His grace?

What is the fruit of your tongue? Is it life or death?

P.S: Even as I write this I am guilty of back biting lately. I am convinced this message is more for me than anyone else. I acknowledge that I have sinned with my words; I sincerely repent and ask for God's forgiveness. May I be careful not to repeat the same...
