Daily Devotional – 5/9/14 “Govern your own mouth!”

Proverbs 13:3 says, “Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life; he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin. Let me start this thang off biblically because the way this world is set up, every word you use is scrutinize now days. However let me make this plain, be careful what you say, who you say it to and at what time because what you say yesterday may just be taken the wrong way today. Govern your own mouth! Now, I say this because of all the news reports lately about people being secretly recorded and then their lives being turned upside down. Yes, I have an issue with racist but every racist no matter what color your skin is but I also have an issue with blacks who get mad at others using the N word when they use it so loosely every day. If you have a problem with others saying it, you shouldn’t use it either, period! It doesn’t matter about the color of your skin because if that word brings negativity when it’s said, then no one should be able to say it. Ephesians 5:4 says, “Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving.”

The real issue happening now is that the trust between folks will be null and void. With people secretly recording and videoing conversations, there will be no more relationships among people which mean business and personal relationships will suffer even more. And with the world today, we need all the trust we can get. I mean, if you can’t find trust in your own home or place of business, you’re in for a world of trouble. What is going on? We’ve got to get it together people. Words hurt more than any illness, cut or scrape because bodily injuries can heal yet words said can’t be taken back. It’s time now for a change. Teach what is right to say at all times for Romans 14:19 say, “So then, let us pursue what makes for peace and for building up one another.” You, as a Christian, have a duty to not cause your brother/sister to stumble for the bible says in Romans 14:10-12 “But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you regard your brother with contempt? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. For it is written, “AS I LIVE, SAYS THE LORD, EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW TO ME AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL GIVE PRAISE TO GOD.” So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God.” AND you also have a duty to govern your own mouth! Govern your mouth and let God do the rest.
