• ”As we grow spiritually, God begins to wean us from things that we think we can’t live without: things, comfort, the longing for life to ‘work.’ That’s a childish instinct, to say, ‘Life has to work the way I want it to work, and now’.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Watch Your Tongue by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 11/11/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Do you ever have trouble keeping your tongue under control?

“Not a problem for me. In fact, I was talking yesterday about this with my friend. We know a lady named Sarah who just can’t keep her mouth shut . . .”

Nancy: Do you gossip? Slander others with your tongue?

”Well, I’m not saying anything that’s not true. Susan told me yesterday that she and her husband . . .”

Nancy: Do you have a critical tongue?

“I can’t believe she could be so dumb as to think she could get away with borrowing the car.”

Nancy: Do you speak words that are useless?

“I was watching yesterday, and Rachel was talking with Monica about all the guys she had been with . . .”

Nancy: How often do you express thanks?

“They were out of the jumbo size! I had to buy mega instead!”

Nancy: Ephesians 4:29 says: “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouth, but only what is helpful for building others up.” Have you been building up or tearing down with your tongue today?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
