DEVO 11.07.22



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


- Did your mouth get you in trouble?

- I think it has happened to all of us at one time or another.

- These words of wisdom say that if you control your tongue or your mouth, that it will give you a long life.

- Not just an extended life but a blessed Life.

- We need to think before we speak.

- Ask yourself: ”Will these words hurt or will they help?”

- “Will this build up or tear down?”

- “Will they strengthen a relationship or will they strangle it?”

- Look to use words that will build up, strengthen, help, encourage and bless!

- If you never ask yourself these questions then you have an unbridled tongue.

- A tongue that is totally unguarded.

- You will find hurt people all around you.

- Your mouth can actually destroy every bit of testimony that you have.

- In Matthew 12:34, Jesus says, “For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.”

- So if you want to build up and encourage others then you, yourself need to be filled with Life Giving Words!

- You have to store up (inside) what you are going to distribute or give out (outside).

- So if you want Life Giving Words to flow out of your mouth, look at the things that you dwell on.

- If it is critical, negative, blaming or fault finding, then you know of an area that you need to be focused on.

- If you change your thought life then you can change your words.

- If you change your words then you can bring blessing and healing into peoples lives.

- Today is a great day to speak Life!

- Have a great Monday!
