The tongue is a small organ of our bodies that we mostly use to talk and taste with or lick and kiss.
But for now I want to talk about its use for talking.
We use the tongue to shout, gossip, bless, curse, and many more functions of expressing a word.
You can find someone saying mind your own words, be careful with your tongue, listen before you answer back, think before you speak and actions are better than words. These kinds of statements are there to warn people about how to use their tongues.
There are two options available for you to use your tongue: one, you can use it for blessing, and second, for cursing others. That’s why someone can say that what you speak out upon your life comes true on you as it does when you speak upon another’s life.
When you sinned you confessed with your tongue to be forgiven, which means that the tongue has power to bless and curse, build or destroy your life or the life of anyone else.
So be very careful how you use your tongue because it’s the most powerful organ you have. Your tongue can cut someone to pieces. What you talk about or upon someone’s life should be meaningful and intended to build them up and not to tear them down.
It might be your child, sister, brother, mother, father, your relative, neighbor, friend or stranger. Use your tongue to bless them, uplift them, motivate them and help them reach their greatness.
People can use their tongue to proclaim and praise the name of the Lord Jesus, some can use it to teach, preach, pray, comfort others, prophesy a happy life upon others. But you are using it to insult, shout, accuse, gossip, lie, and witch others.
That’s not good because you are destroying family members, friends, neighbors, church members, schoolmates, workmates, etc., with your tongue instead of using it to help them be happy and successful people.
This also teaches you to speak good upon your own life and be positive in mind always, because you can use your tongue to bless yourself or curse yourself too. If you speak negative things about yourself, the devil will use your words to build an unhappy life for you.
Learn to speak good things, be positive and all shall come to pass.
