The Tongue

  1. 1. LIVING IN A CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY
  2. 2. MY JOURNEY
  3. 3. Pro 12:18 Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing. Pro 15:1 A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare. Pro 16:24 Kind words are like honey—sweet to the soul and healthy for the body. Pro 21:23 Watch your tongue and keep your mouth shut, and you will stay out of trouble.
  4. 4. Mat 12:35 A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart.
  5. 5. 1CO 13:1 IF I COULD SPEAK ALL THE LANGUAGES OF EARTH AND OF ANGELS, BUT DIDN'T LOVE OTHERS, I WOULD ONLY BE A NOISY GONG OR A CLANGING CYMBAL.
  6. 6. HOW ARE YOUR RELATIONSHIPS?
  7. 7. ISSUES OF MY HEART, MY TONGUE?
  8. 8. MATTHEW 18
  9. 9. JAS 1:19 UNDERSTAND THIS, MY DEAR BROTHERS AND SISTERS: YOU MUST ALL BE QUICK TO LISTEN, SLOW TO SPEAK, AND SLOW TO GET ANGRY.
  10. 10. JAS 3:2 INDEED, WE ALL MAKE MANY MISTAKES. FOR IF WE COULD CONTROL OUR TONGUES, WE WOULD BE PERFECT AND COULD ALSO CONTROL OURSELVES IN EVERY OTHER WAY. JAS 3:8 BUT NO ONE CAN TAME THE TONGUE. JAS 3:9 SOMETIMES IT PRAISES OUR LORD AND FATHER, AND SOMETIMES IT CURSES THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD. JAS 3:10 AND SO BLESSING AND CURSING COME POURING OUT OF THE SAME MOUTH.
  11. 11. Finding Kingdom responses in this
  12. 12. Take aways for thought: • Be unoffendable in my heart • Be committed in love to the other person/people • Never respond in the emotion • Listen well – take what is said to God – respond – leave it at the throne • Apologise if needed • Don’t have expectations towards the other person/people
