Be Careful of the Tongue...

Be Careful Of the Tongue…


Be careful of your tongue-you could

take "the wrong turn."

Sometimes things are said

with no love or concern.


The Bible refers to the tongue

as being the rudder.

Be careful to not speak

"words out of the gutter."


Be very quick to listen, ever slow to speak.

In the way you live

and how you preach.


Remember as you take

your every breath,

The words you speak can bring

life or death.


From a heart of love,

and a Christ-like mind,

May you speak that which

is encouraging and kind.


May others know that you’re

someone who does care,

Spreading tidings of God’s joy

to people everywhere!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
