What comes out of our mouth can be used to encourage and speak loving truth to those around us. But, though it is a small part of our bodies, our tongue can also cause greater destruction than any other part. In Psalm 12:3-4 David says, May the Lord cut off all flattering lips and every boastful tongue that says, “We will triumph with our tongues; we own our lips — who is our master?” In this day of social media people find it acceptable to say things they never would in person. Unfortunately, this is now permeating into the physical as well as virtual worlds where people are not afraid to speak their minds to perfect strangers. We must guard our speech from hurting others and instead do all things in love.
