Taming the Tongue
The size of the problem: It runs deep. This is not just for teachers but for all of us. If we don't stumble with the tongue then we can conquer the whole body because the tongue is a strong enemy. The source of the problem: there is something within that comes out when we speak and reveals our hearts. Satan is a liar. With our tongue we do the devil's work. The solution to the problem: God can do what we can't. We must go forward in His strength. We need to be proactive and think in advance of what we are going to say and how our words can be a blessing.
