You and Your Mouth

James 3:7-9 (NIV)

7 All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, 8 but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. 9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in Gods likeness.

*It's so easy to speak poorly about individuals, especially when they have done you wrong. It's as though humans are accustom to scrutinizing others, and placing people under a microscope to find something to scrutinize. It's even easier for some to utilize negative words against scenarios and discuss our flaws rather then embrace yourself and look for the positivity. Yes, we live in a negative world and sure people upset us. However, we must view people the way God sees them and realize their value and considers the fact that we are made in His image. We are also told that iron sharpens iron (Proverbs 27:17). However, how can you sharpen and shun at the same time? How can we confuse walking in love with cursing an individual? Call those things as they are not and learn to watch your mouth...You could be talking  yourself out of a blessings, acting rude toward someone u may need to use, or underestimating the power of God to manifest.
