The Tongue on Fire – By Jim Haring

Our tongues wield immense power. This seemingly small organ within us holds the ability to shape destinies. It can alter someone’s perspective, shift their emotions, or even transform their professional trajectory and public perception. Whether you’re in a position of authority or simply engaging in casual conversation, your words carry weight. While the tongue can be a force for good, it can also be a tool of harm, echoing the sentiments of our hearts. To ensure our words uplift rather than harm, we must nourish our hearts with positivity and purpose. We must fill them with goodness, giving God something to work with. Always remember: what fills your heart spills from your lips. So, what occupies your heart’s space? Is it mere entertainment, like binge-watching shows, or is it a deeper connection with the Divine? One of the most powerful things we can do is to immerse ourselves in the Word, allowing it to shape our hearts and, in turn, our words.
