Great reminder. Less is more. Thank you!
I do agree with you here. The tongue is a very small organ in our body, but it plays a big role in ones life. It is what you say that keeps with you in every instinct of life. Thanks for sharing this here. Keep posting in future. laptop stickers
As I read this post, I reminded of the book of Proverbs. No author in this world has written better that King Solomon on this subject:
•“………… he who holds his tongue is wise.” ~ Proverbs 10:19b
•Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” ~ Proverbs 12:18
•“………… a kind word cheers him (a man) up.” ~ Proverbs 12:25b
•“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” ~ Proverbs 15:1
•“A man finds joy in giving an apt reply— and how good is a timely word.” ~ Proverbs 15:23
•“…………….. pleasant words promote instruction.” ~ Proverbs 16:21b
•“Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.” ~ Proverbs 16:24
•“A man of knowledge uses words with restraint” ~ Proverbs 17:27a
•“The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to a man’s inmost parts.” ~ Proverbs 18:8
•“A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.” ~ Proverbs 25:11

Watch my words here: Why do you wear cloths while preaching like a person who is going to Lowe's or Wal Mart? Of course Joel Osteen does were a suit? Which says, its not necessary the suit that is what you could do? What is your motive behind your dress the way you do? Why? Because I do follow your words often.
And I do have four children who live in Lexington, where I would like them to be in a good church.
I dress up for one service and in street clothes for the other. Why? Consider 1 Cor 919Though I am freeand belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone,to win as many as possible.20To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews.To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law),so as to win those under the law.21To those not having the law I became like one not having the law(though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law),so as to win those not having the law.22To the weak I became weak, to win the weak.I have become all things to all peopleso that by all possible means I might save some.23I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.When I dress like people going to Lowes or Wal Mart, it's to reach people who go to Lowes and Wal Mart.Thanks for your comment.
Ouch. Too true. The worst part is that my little words come out of the big mess that is my heart. Thank you!Needed it.
We all do!
Amen brother! The tongue is a small member of the body but it can cause the greatest harm if used improperly(it's gotten me in trouble a few times myself). "Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking deceit." Psalm 34:13
