Litmus Test

Has the Lord redeemed you?
Then speak out!
Psalm 107:2

They say that the tongue is the most uncontrollable part of our body. The Bible also mentioned how it can greatly influence our lives. 

Indeed, we all make many mistakes. For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way.
James 3:2

If the eyes are the window to our soul, our mouth shows the state of our heart and soul. 

A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart.
Luke 6:45

If someone would measure your kindness through the words that come out of your mouth, what do you think would be the result?

Unfortunately, most of us would probably fail this litmus test.

Now the challenge that Psalms 107:2 imposes is not just to control our tongue but make a habit out of praising and proclaiming God's glory in your life.

This challenge actually helps as cure our mouth that spits out acidic, painful and unkind words.
If we make it a habit to say good things about God and how he redeemed and change us, this would decrease your opportunity to say bad words.

This would also give us a yearning to get to know God more. We cannot give empty praises and statements about God.

Let us challenge ourselves everyday to speak out about God's redeeming power in our life. :)
