In a recent blog post, Dr Dobson talks about the power of the tongue and compares it to a small fire that can take down an entire forest. Let's remember to ask the Lord for the spirit of self control and for Him to help us speak with love, always.
Also, I believe in our high tech days, the "tongue" can also count as fingers. As in, what we type out for social media can also set a huge fire. Lord, do I need Your strength!
