The Tongue

 

• Failures in tongue management.

—- Pointing fingers, she started it

—- Self pity

—- Trying to prove yourself

—- Speaking out of fear

—- Losing your temper

—- Gossip, a defense mechanism to make us look better

• Success in tongue management.

—- Take ownership of what you say

—- Control is a daily process of trusting and yielding to Christ

—- Total forgiveness

—- Don’t repay railing for railing

• N.E.E.D.

—- Is saying this Necessary?

—- Will it Encourage the person?

—- Did I Dignify this person?
