Would you like to gain positive control over two vital aspects of life: health and relationships? Your body performance and interpersonal connections weigh heavily on the proper supervision of a tiny, yet powerful orifice. If you want these areas to improve, you must regulate what passes through your mouth.
Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
– Proverbs 21:23
Your mouth, specifically your tongue, will demand its own pleasure if let unbridled. It is so powerful that it can consume to the detriment of your body. Poor input management can lead to stress and disease. For optimal physical health, input regulation is critical. Your Heavenly Father provides wisdom on what to ingest and supernatural strength for the discipline regulation requires.
However, output governance of your mouth is vital to your spiritual wellness and thriving relationships. What it transmits has the power to build up and edify or to tear down and destroy. Your mouth can also speak through tweets, posts, comments and other social media platforms. The more you regulate what your mouth says, the more control you gain over your life.
For those who want to love life and see good days should keep their tongue from evil speaking and their lips from speaking lies.
– 1 Peter 3:10 Common English Bible
Whatever happened to the teaching…If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all? Even the Word of God advises…
Understand this, my beloved brothers and sisters.
Let everyone be quick to hear [be a careful, thoughtful listener],
slow to speak [a speaker of carefully chosen words and],
slow to anger [patient, reflective, forgiving];
– James 1:19 Amplified Bible
Your joy, peace, well-being and power are directly connected to the content in your mouth. If you are going to open it, do your best to regulate it.
