Choosing Words Wisely

“With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness.” James 3:9

The tongue.  A small muscle, yet a powerful tool to make peace or a dangerous weapon to tear down nations. When our kids are young, we work hard to teach our kids how to speak. We give them instruction on how to make sounds and pronounce words in our language.  But as we know, they also learn by listening and observing, both how we speak to others and how the world communicates.

This week, take a moment to consider how you can help your kids choose their words wisely and use the powerful muscle God has given them to edify others and bring glory to God.  Check out this article by Karen
