Sweetness to the Soul

Our tongues can either be trained in the things of the Lord and bring hope and excitement to this world or stay wild and become a tool for the enemy to use for his gain.

Last week Paulie spoke about fixing your eyes on things that are of a “good report” from Phil 4:8.

A good report means words that are gracious, praiseworthy and fair sounding. Prov. 16:24 says,

“Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.”

We also took a look at James 3:2-12 about how important our confession is. When it talks about our tongue being trainable, the key is to make sure our heart is in the right place first. The only way we can do that is if the Lord is on the throne of our heart above everything else.

Why is the tongue so hard to tame? Because it speaks what’s actually in our hearts. If our hearts are full of evil the tongue will show that. We have to commit our hearts to Christ first and then our tongue and confession will follow along, speaking life instead of death.

We love you and will see you all Friday!
