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.

Verse of the Day

[The Day of the Lord] But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, — 2 Peter 3:10-11 (NKJV)
