To Ponder:


Let me see your tongue! “The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart–and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart, his mouth speaks!” Luke 6:45. If your religion does not sweeten your tongue–it has done nothing for you. If the doctor wants to know the state of your health, he says, “Let me see your tongue!” There is no better test of the health of the soul, than to see what is on the tongue! When it gets cankered with unkind words, when it turns black with blasphemy, when it is spotted with impurity–there is something very bad inside the heart, you may be quite sure of that! Let your lips be a fountain from which all streams that flow shall savor of grace and goodness. “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths–but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Ephesians 4:29. “Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place–but rather thanksgiving.” Ephesians 5:4.
