Two Things The Tongue Reveals

We’ve been talking about the boneless tongue. That little thing in our mouths that can get us into a lot of trouble. Today, I’m going to share with you two things that your tongue and my tongue reveals about us!

Our tongue is like a badge which you and I wear, it identifies us. It tells others what’s in the well of our hearts. Beware, what’s in your heart will eventually come out through your mouth!

Our tongue can be like a run away horse. A run away horse can cause death and destruction, and so can the tongue. Someone said of another person, “His mind starts his tongue to wagging, and then goes off and leaves it.”

God hates it when a tongue is out of control. Proverbs 6:16-17 says, “These six things doth the Lord hate: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood.”
