So again, how are we using our tongue? Is it for enlightenment and encouragement or the drowning of discouragement? Does it spread glorious hope and cheer or deep despair and defeat? Do we use our tongue for proclaiming God’s praises and precious promises or the drumming of doubts and disappointments?
Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. 10. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. 11. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? - James 3:9-11
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer. - Psalm 19:14
