Guard Your Mouth!

Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.”-Psalm 141:3

Words are a double-edged sword. The same mouth that can pray, praise, worship and say, “I love you.” is the same mouth that can curse, yell, assume, judge and more. Words have scars that cannot be seen. The impact of our words can build or destroy something great in an instant. All of us have fallen short as it says in Romans 3:23 “ for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” Jesus died for everyone because all of us are sinners. There is no one in the history of mankind that has been perfect. Jesus died for every sin including our words.

Today’s scripture is a reminder that we need to ask God to help us with our words. We need to depend on the Holy Spirit when we are speaking. We also must take responsibility when we miss the mark to ask God for forgiveness and repent. Also, we need to apologize to the party involved. All of us can come up higher in how we use our words.  The Word of God is a beautiful way to reprogram our words and how we use our words. Our words should be used to build and encourage others. Our words should not hurt or harm anyone else. Ephesians 4:29 says, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Guard your mouth!
