1 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY ARE RELIGIOUS BUT SAY THINGS THEY SHOULD NOT SAY ARE JUST FOOLING THEMSELVES. THEIR "RELIGION" IS WORTH NOTHING. JAMES 1:26

2 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY THE TONGUE IS THE TINIEST MEMBER OF THE BODY AND IS DESCRIBED IN BIOLOGY TEXTS AS THE STRONGEST MUSCLE IN THE HUMAN BODY FOR ITS SIZE. TRY THIS AT HOME-PUT YOUR PINKY FINGER IN YOUR MOUTH AT THE TIP OF YOUR TONGUE AND TRY TO PUSH DOWN. YOUR TONGUE WILL WIN. THE TONGUE HELPS DOCTORS DIAGNOSE HEALTH PROBLEMS, AND IT IS ALSO EFFECTIVE IN HELPING US TO DETERMINE SPIRITUAL HEALTH.

3 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY JAMES 3:5-6 (MSG) 5. IT ONLY TAKES A SPARK, REMEMBER, TO SET OFF A FOREST FIRE. A CARELESS OR WRONGLY PLACED WORD OUT OF YOUR MOUTH CAN DO THAT. 6. BY OUR SPEECH WE CAN RUIN THE WORLD, TURN HARMONY TO CHAOS, THROW MUD ON A REPUTATION, SEND THE WHOLE WORLD UP IN SMOKE AND GO UP IN SMOKE WITH IT, SMOKE RIGHT FROM THE PIT OF HELL.

4 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY WE KNOW THE TONGUE CAN GET US IN TROUBLE. WHAT ARE SOME WAYS YOU CAN KEEP FROM SAYING THINGS THAT CAN HURT OR HARM OTHERS?

5 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY THE STORY PS. 55 (NCV) 12 IT WAS NOT AN ENEMY INSULTING ME. I COULD STAND THAT. IT WAS NOT SOMEONE WHO HATED ME. I COULD HIDE FROM HIM. 13 BUT IT IS YOU, A PERSON LIKE ME, MY COMPANION AND GOOD FRIEND. 14 WE HAD A GOOD FRIENDSHIP AND WALKED TOGETHER TO GOD'S TEMPLE.

6 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY EACH SECTION WILL DISCUSS A STORY OR OTHER VERSES FROM THE FOLLOWING BOOKS THAT GIVE INSIGHT ON HOW WORDS (RUMORS, GOSSIP, LIES ETC) CAN BE HARMFUL. GROUP #1: OLD TESTAMENT GROUP #2: PSALMS; PROVERBS OR ECCLESIASTES GROUP # 3: NEW TESTAMENT

7 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY WE CAN BE CARELESS WITH OUR SPEECH AT TIMES THE SPOKEN WORD CAN NEVER BE RECALLED WHEN IT LEAVES OUR LIPS IT CAN BE FORGIVEN BUT NOT CHANGED. THOUGHTLESS WORD THAT ARE SPOKEN ARE NOT FORGOTTEN. CARELESS WORD THAT ARE SPOKEN CAN CUT, STING AND HURT OTHERS BRINGING DISHONOR TO GOD’S NAME.

8 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY MATT. 12:36-37 (NCV) 36 AND I TELL YOU THAT ON THE JUDGMENT DAY PEOPLE WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR EVERY CARELESS THING THEY HAVE SAID. 37 THE WORDS YOU HAVE SAID WILL BE USED TO JUDGE YOU. SOME OF YOUR WORDS WILL PROVE YOU RIGHT, BUT SOME OF YOUR WORDS WILL PROVE YOU GUILTY."

9 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY AS CHRISTIANS WE CAN SIN WITH OUR TONGUES. IT IS NOT UNCOMMON TO SHARE OR GOSSIP ABOUT SOMETHING THAT MAY HINDER WHAT GOD WANTS TO DO FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST. ANYONE WHO GIVES AN OPINION WHEN A FACT IS REQUIRED IS A FOOL. BACKBITING AND GOSSIP CAN RUIN LIVES, ORGANIZATIONS ETC. DON’T START A RUMOR AND STOP YOUR BLESSINGS

10 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY LEV. 19:16 (MSG) 16 “DON’T SPREAD GOSSIP AND RUMORS. “DON’T JUST STAND BY WHEN YOUR NEIGHBOR’S LIFE IS IN DANGER. I AM G OD. MANY OF US DON’T REALIZE THE SERIOUS CONSEQUENCE OF THOUGHTLESSLY TALKING ABOUT OTHERS. GOSSIP CAN SEPARATE THE BEST OF FRIENDS AND BRING ABOUT MISUNDERSTANDINGS.

11 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY WHAT CAN HELP YOU CONTROL YOUR TONGUE-PRAYER PSALM 141:3 (NCV) 3 LORD, HELP ME CONTROL MY TONGUE; HELP ME BE CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT I SAY. WE DON’T WANT TO LOSE ONE MAN OR WOMAN BECAUSE OF CARELESS WORDS. WHAT WE SAY SHOULD DRAW OTHERS TO CHRIST NOT TURN PEOPLE AWAY FROM HIM.

12 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY WHAT CAN HELP YOU WITH YOUR TONGUE BE QUICK TO LISTEN JAMES 1: MY DEAR BROTHERS AND SISTERS, ALWAYS BE WILLING TO LISTEN AND SLOW TO SPEAK. DO NOT BECOME ANGRY EASILY, 20 BECAUSE ANGER WILL NOT HELP YOU LIVE THE RIGHT KIND OF LIFE GOD WANTS.

13 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY ECCL. 5:2 (MSG) DON’T SHOOT OFF YOUR MOUTH, OR SPEAK BEFORE YOU THINK. DON’T BE TOO QUICK TO TELL GOD WHAT YOU THINK HE WANTS TO HEAR. GOD’S IN CHARGE, NOT YOU—THE LESS YOU SPEAK, THE BETTER.

14 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY -DON’T BE RASH WITH YOUR WORD. PS. 39:1 (NCV) 1 I SAID, "I WILL BE CAREFUL HOW I ACT AND WILL NOT SIN BY WHAT I SAY. I WILL BE CAREFUL WHAT I SAY AROUND WICKED PEOPLE." EPH. 4:29 (NCV) 29 WHEN YOU TALK, DO NOT SAY HARMFUL THINGS, BUT SAY WHAT PEOPLE NEED—WORDS THAT WILL HELP OTHERS BECOME STRONGER. THEN WHAT YOU SAY WILL DO GOOD TO THOSE WHO LISTEN TO YOU.

15 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY WHAT CAN YOU DO TO CONTROL YOUR TONGUE CONTROL WHAT GOES INTO YOUR HEART LUKE 6:45 45 GOOD PEOPLE BRING GOOD THINGS OUT OF THE GOOD THEY STORED IN THEIR HEARTS. BUT EVIL PEOPLE BRING EVIL THINGS OUT OF THE EVIL THEY STORED IN THEIR HEARTS. PEOPLE SPEAK THE THINGS THAT ARE IN THEIR HEARTS. PS. 51:10 10 CREATE IN ME A PURE HEART, GOD, AND MAKE MY SPIRIT RIGHT AGAIN.

16 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY HOW DO WE CONTROL OUR TONGUE REMEMBER TO WATCH YOUR HEART-OUT OF THE ABUNDANCE OF THE HEART THE MOUTH SPEAKS. PRAY ASK GOD TO GIVE YOU A CLEAN HEART AND TO RENEW A RIGHT SPIRIT WITHIN YOU ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT TO GUIDE YOU. HE WILL HELP YOU IF YOU LET HIM BE SWIFT TO LISTEN, SLOW TO SPEAK DON’T TALK TOO MUCH-DON’T BE RASH WITH YOUR WORDS.

17 WATCH WHAT YOU SAY ALWAYS ASK FOR GOD’S HELP PS. 19:14 LET THE WORDS OF MY MOUTH AND THE MEDITATION OF MY HEART, BE ACCEPTABLE IN THY SIGHT, O LORD, MY STRENGTH, AND MY REDEEMER.
