Psalm and Praise, Day 141

What does it take to keep our mouth in check? Read Psalm chapter 141.

I’m not sure that having a guard keeping watch over my mouth would keep it from saying the things that it shouldn’t say. My opinions can be pretty strong in my own head sometimes and the urge to share those can be equally strong. However, just because the thought enters our heads doesn’t mean that we should utter it to others.

We must filter our thoughts through the lens of Jesus Christ and make sure that the words that come out of our mouth have been guarded and approved and that Jesus would want them said.

Are we reflecting Jesus Christ in the words that we say? Are we sharing his love and his message in the way we conduct ourselves and the messages that we give? We must set a guard over our mouth to keep us more like him
