James 1:26 ” If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless.”

Holding my tongue.  It might be a very small body part, but it sometimes requires herculean strengthen not to blurt out what I’m thinking!…especially if it’s catty or unkind.  And I find if I’m not careful,  my manner of speech will quickly start to resemble the  non believer group I’m part of…especially if it’s a grip session…or worse yet – a gossip session!  One of my favorite Proverbs says, “Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps his mouth shut.”  I may be doing a wonderful job serving God…but if my speech says the opposite…it’s all meaningless.
