CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Words are powerful. God says so. Throughout the Bible we see a constant theme where gossiping, talking too much, and careless mouths are warned against. This is something that I struggle with. It is very easy to get sucked into gossip, especially if it’s true. But does truth matter when we are using our words to tear someone down? Let’s look at Scripture:
Proverbs 18:21 “The tongue has the power of life and death”
Ephesians 4:29 “Let no unwholesome talk come our of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their deeds, that it may benefit those who listen”
Exodus 23:1 “Do not spread false reports”
James 1:26 “Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves”
Proverbs 10:19 “Sin is not ended by multiplying words, but the prudent hold their tongues”
Proverbs 11:9 “With their mouths the godless destroy their neighbors”
Proverbs 16:28 “A perverse person stirs up conflict”
Psalm 141:3 “Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips”
As you can see, the Lord treats our words and the intent behind them very seriously, even if what we are saying is true. I would encourage each of you to consider your words wisely, use them to build others up (even if we “feel” they deserve to be torn down). There is a lot of wisdom in keeping our mouths shut, living a quiet existence and letting our actions speak for us. There have been so many times in my 39 years I’ve wished I could take something I said back. Be mindful of what you speak and learn to tame the tongue.
