SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/15/15- “The Paradox Of Our Tongues!” (James 3:9-10)

Premise Question: What is the determining factor and condition, as it relates to whether or not it’s cursing or blessing that comes out of our mouths, being uttered by our very own tongues?

“Sometimes it praises our Lord and Father, and sometimes it curses those who have been made in the image of God. And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth. Surely, my brothers and sisters, this is not right!” ‭‭(James‬ ‭3:9-10‬ ‭NLT‬)

My dearly and most beloved family, of The Most High, we have an all too common practice, that is paradoxical in nature, of expressing, by uttering praises and blessings, with acclamation, exaltation, admiration, laudation and commendation, unto our LORD and Savior and Papa God, while at the same time, coming out of the same mouth and with the same tongue, we utter profanity, filled with condemnation, denunciation, abomination, damnation and a commination of curses, directed towards our fellow humankind; which, by the way, were also formed, shaped and modeled, by The LORD GOD Almighty Himself, to be a representation of His Own Likeness. What is this then, that I’m hearing coming from your mouths; both, expressions of appreciation, grateful homage, with high acclaim and devotion, as well as, expressions of profane obscenities that are blasphemous, filled with obloquious hurtful abusive language? My most beloved and cherished fellow family members of The Company of The Redeemed, this should not be occurring, as it is completely unacceptable and incongruent behavior, that should absolutely never be a part of our common practice, as believers. (James 3:9-10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: What ends up coming out of our mouths, which is uttered by our tongues, is more often times than naught, determined by the content of our hearts. One more salient point to consider: When we curse others, who have been created in Papa God’s likeness, we, in essence, are essentially cursing The Creator of humankind. Remember, it is always out of the abundance of what is in our hearts, that determines the expressions and how the mouth ends up speaking; whether it be blessing or cursing! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/08/15- “Control Your Tongue And Live!” (Proverbs 13:3)

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/08/15- “Control Your Tongue And Live!” (Proverbs 13:3)

Premise Question: What must we do to control our tongue?

Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭13‬:‭3‬ NLT)

When one is able to have control over the content of what they allow to escape out of their heart and mind, slipping over their tongue, through their lips and out of their mouth; it will have the wonderful effect of protecting and maintaining their continued existence, and will fill up their life up with an effervescence of joy and peace. Conversely, though, when there is no restraint or thoughtful consideration, but an acting with haste, with a total lack of prudence, while articulating, it will result in arriving at a place of certain downfall; producing a life that’s ravaged, resulting in a thoroughly and utterly devastating complete loss, irretrievably injured, without any possibility of repair! (Proverbs 13:3 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Choose to always speak words that promote life, encouragement and refreshing; words that will build up, repair and renew, not words that foment death and despair, that shred, tear apart, tear down, demolish and destroy. Don’t allow words to come forth, out of your mouth, impulsively, unchecked and unbridled, lacking propriety and appropriateness, causing a spontaneous combustion that can turn into a conflagration, having the potential to obliterate and destroy everything and everyone within range of hearing and then, once it spreads, everywhere else it’s carried to and repeated! It’s much more prudent to have a good, wise and strong filter, with a shut off valve at the ready. I can remember hearing some of these sayings in years gone by: “Put a lid on it!” “Zip your lip!” “Think before you speak!” “Be careful little mouth what you speak!” “Put a guard on that tongue and lock it down!” “Zip it, lock it and throw away the key!” “Measure twice, cut once!” A variation of that one is: “Be very careful before you speak, measuring every word carefully before you choose to speak, so you won’t throw caution to the wind and speak thoughtlessly and carelessly; therefore, measure your thoughts and words twice before you speak them out!” The problem arises when we allow inappropriate words to escape across our tongues and out of our mouths. But the root of the problem and the real issue is what is already entrenched, fomenting and waiting for an opportunity to release and express itself, in our thoughts and heart. For as The LORD Himself said: You brood of snakes! How could evil men like you speak what is good and right? For whatever is in your heart determines what you say. (‭Matthew‬ ‭12‬:‭34‬ NLT) So, if we don’t want to mis-speak, which can produce unwanted, chaotic and destructive results; then we must be willing to deal with what is in our heart, in an appropriate way and manner and in a prudently chosen, appropriate time and place, along with wise counsel and the powerful agent of forgiveness, walking in release and applying the entirety of Papa God’s Holy Scriptures, to our life, in every situation, circumstance and in all our different and various relationships! Remember, the mouth will, perhaps inadvertently, at an inopportune time or occasion, eventually speak what is hidden in your heart and thoughts. So, as I am wont to say: “Keep your heart free of debris, flush the flesh and stay refreshed!” Blessings…

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. (‭James‬ ‭3‬:‭9-10‬ NIV)
