Has your mouth ever gotten you into trouble? Maybe you just chuckled and thought, “Are you serious? It gets me into trouble every day.” I hear you. I’m the same.
Our mouths can get us into trouble when we get aggravated and say something we shouldn’t say. Our mouths can get us into trouble if we repeat something we’ve hard or we gossip about someone.
Psalms 17:3 says, “I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.”
Everyone of us can pray that prayer. We can vow not to say anything negative. We can vow not to repeat gossip…. maybe we need to vow not to listen to gossip… We can vow that we will only say encouraging things.
Join me today in guarding our tongues and not sinning with our mouth.
