Everything was peaceful
decided to go even though I didn’t want to
eventually something was said
then up popped the bad attitude
And my tongue became unruly

The spirit convicted me right away
No matter whom I’m talking to, watch what you say
“I’m sorry “ should have come out my mouth
But I was too proud
Spirit then said If you can’t say I’m sorry
do something nice
And until I did, I wasn’t feeling right

Thanks Lord for your convicting spirit
That didn’t let me be comfortable
For saying words so harmful
You showed me how to express being sorrowful
And reminded me to watch my mouth.

 

Insight

In James 3:6-11, it talks about how the tongue is such as small part of the body, yet has such a powerful impact on our lives. Words can hurt more than physical wounds. And unlike physical wounds which heal, words can cause permanent emotionally damage. Folk can stay mad at each other for life. So, watch what you say.
