Enjoy Life

 “If you want to enjoy life and see many happy days, keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies. Turn away from evil and do good. Search for peace, and work to maintain it.” – 1 Peter 3:11 Over the years I have met many Christians that have struggled with the way they talk. Some of us have been guilty of cussing and saying awful things about others.  Have you ever considered the size of the Titanic?  It measured 882ft long or the length of 4 football fields.  The rudder on the Titanic was only 15ft wide.  The rudder is so small compared to the overall size of the ship.  Likewise our tongue is such a small part that corrupts the whole body.  Do you think it is okay for a Christian to cuss and curse others?  The Bible is very clear, we cannot praise God and curse others.  Ray Comfort was asked if it was okay for a Christian to cuss.  His response was,  “The Bible say’s the mouth speaks the abundance of your heart (Luke 6:45). And if you let filthy communication come out of your mouth, and the Bible says not to do it, It shows you have a filthy heart. So, I don’t believe a Christian should use filthy language. If you do, try it in a prayer sometime when you’re talking to God”. The issue of our mouth and how we talk comes from our heart.  Do you want to change the way you talk and think?  This can only be accomplished by changing your heart.  Start today and confess your sins before God. Start changing your heart and your mouth will follow. For the past few generations Mothers have shared great wisdom when they said (I know you have heard it) "If you can't say something nice about someone, don't say anything at all". It's a good start.
