This is the thing that stuck in my brain this week:
I can not control my gossiping and slandering tongue. While I may be improving in this area I can honestly tell you that I gossip and/or slander daily. Often without intending to. So each night I have been asking God for forgiveness and each morning I need to ask Him to guard my lips and tongue. I hope to hide the scripture below in my heart so I can remember that the people I am talking about are God's creation.
This is scary: You can tame a tiger, but you can't tame a tongue—it's never been done. The tongue runs wild, a wanton killer. With our tongues we bless God our Father; with the same tongues we curse the very men and women he made in his image. Curses and blessings out of the same mouth! James 3:7-10 Message
