#9 Bury Your Head

Have you ever had a time when something just slipped out of your mouth and later you would like to find a hole to crawl into or a place to just bury your head? Trying to impress others will get us into trouble. Not thinking before we speak can get us in a world of hurt. Sometimes it is best not to even speak the truth if it will hurt someone. Things are often times best left unsaid. The Bible says to be good to listen and slow to speak (James 1:19). God has so many verses of warning about the use of our tongues. Please read just a few below and ask God for guidance concerning your speech.

Prov. 12:18 Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
Prov. 15:4 The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.
Prov. 26:28 A lying tongue hates those it hurts, and a flattering mouth works ruin.
James 3:5 Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark.
James 3:6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.
