24-lgThe tongue is one of the greatest blessings that God has given us. I think it is one of the super power for human. It is very difficult for someone to live without the ability to speak. However, at the same time the tongue can be the most dangerous thing for us. Unfortunately, one of the infamous signatures of many youth today is a bad mouth. The youngsters are replete with sounds of bragging, backbiting, cussing, sex talk, trash talk, bullying, lying, and every other sin of the tongue that can be imagined. Not only youngsters, even kids say horrible things to each other constantly and some make large sums of money through horrible uses of their tongues in the news media and in music. It seems people take lightly the words that come out of their mouths, yet words can be more damaging than swords both to others and to the self, and have caused everything from suicide to murder.

Many time, I would like to stay out of conversations that do not concern me, because uwanted talk makes many problems in our life and I really afraid about distracting all relationship with others. I think most of them are arguing and they try to make their views are true in front of others. It also a big problem make by Tongue, if we just avoid arguing, even if we are in the right. Its good for continuing better relationship with others. Then, try to avoid speak about third person, ie., don’t say anything about someone else unless it is true, good, and useful. Say something bad about someone only if it is truly necessary to avoid a greater harm, such as to protect someone from becoming a victim of a crime. But it is common in all community.

Just think before we speak; like feathers from a pillow blown away by the wind, words cannot be taken back, and their effects cannot be undone. We cannot control how others will respond to our careless words or what their effects will be. All we can do is control what comes out of our mouth to begin with. Please don’t use language to try to impress people or sound cool. I think we can use normal, proper speech and avoid slang, excessive eloquence, and false accents. Then try to speak the truth, even if it is against us. Let our word be reliable. In these days, many youngstes are very interested in sexualized speech or dirty talk, when we avoid this kind activities  and even stop to  degrade the opposite sex or our own through our words, ever, and do not cheapen marital relations with our tongue. It can make more happy and beautiful life.

Do not break confidences with our tongue. We should avoid saying anything to anyone that we would not want revealed to all, unless truly necessary. Likewise, we should never mention about someone else what they would wish to be kept private. For example, men and women should not talk about their quarrels or relations with their spouses to others, children should not carelessly reveal the bad habits of their parents, parents should not embarrass their children by talking about their past mistakes, etc. Many of them are more interested to listen negative speech, poetry or music (movies also), I think this is a chance to gather more about arguments, backbiting, bad-mouthing, cussing, obscenity, lies , etc.. as even choosing to listen to such type of speech is sinful, it promotes such behavior from our own tongue, and it hardens our heart. Its also makes more problems in our life, and try to avoid this types of speeches, and prevent or stop it when possible and don’t listen to any of these negative speech above.

imagesPeople who are careful about their words enjoy many benefits. Those known for gentle, kind, good speech and avoiding unnecessary and negative talk earn respect and trust from other people. Friends will feel safe with them, and people will be more at ease to do business with them. They will enjoy a good reputation. They hear more good things and thus learn more and are more likely to have an expansive and enlightened heart. There is no down side to guarding our tongue, and everyone can do it with practice and effort. No other part of the body commits more sins than the tongue, but if we are diligent, we can make ourselves the exceptions.
