Oh, how our tongues (or, these days, our fingers on a keyboard!) can get us into trouble! Daily we are bombarded with ungodly words, phrases, ideals, and attitudes from the entertainment media and society in general. But that doesn’t mean we need to participate. One who controls his words is a strong person (you can read more about that in James), and one who controls his words can have a powerful influence on those around him. Do we want a reputation as the one who spouts irreverence, or the one who exercises restraint? It really is a choice we make.
