Taming The Tongue
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by James Pemberton

Taming The Tongue...
Sometimes, when your
tongue begins to wander.
Don't allow it to be filled
gossip and slander.
Edify and build up your
bother and sister.
Don't allow your tongue
 to destroy...  Like a "twister
In this world.  You must be
like "seasoned salt."
Praying for one another. 
Not dwelling on a fault.
Backbiting and gossip
will simply devour.
Be filled with God's truth and
 his awesome power!
Don't involve yourself with
words that will decay.
Control your tongue... 
Why not start...  TODAY?

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!
