Sharp Tongue

From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this ought not be so. — James 3:10.

I have a frog in my throat. He needs to hop on out of there, but until he does maybe it’s a lesson to be learned. Words are powerful weapons which should be used to criticize and judge sparingly. As I try to use my voice only when necessary, I am learning to use it only to comfort, heal, and apologize. When I’m tempted to find fault with harsh words, I remember to save my voice.

Now if I can only do the same when the frog goes to another pond.
