The Serpents Tongue

The days we live are quickening with evil and callousness, yet Christ’s followers are strong in Spirit, and through study, we respond with self-control after thinking.

Too often, the go-to is to respond without thinking, and words that are evil breed a more significant contempt yet to reflect Christ’s compassion shows understanding.

The knowledge of God outshines the sickness of evil.

The Bible says, “for judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.”—James 2:13

Therefore blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Indeed we rebuke evil, yet we side with love in praying for our enemies; harsh words promote contempt.

In Proverbs 21:23, we read, “Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.

Too often, man reacts before thinking, and the time between reason and revolts is missed entirely.

Indeed as humans, we become angered by ignorance, but through Christ, we are equipped to listen before speaking.

Stop, think, pray, answer.

It’s acceptable entirely to warn in love to pray and repent and to rebuke evil when Satan attempts to lay witchcraft at your door.

The Bible says, “that good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.”—Proverbs 19:11

The sooner we keep our tongues in check, the greater the works of Christ we will see on earth.

2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Let the snakes slither because the Saints, in Christ—we fly above. To honor God before trepidation and bitterness, please the Lord.

Praise the Lord!

“Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness!

Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe!

Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals!”—Psalm 150:1-6

Praise Him with your heart, and honor Him with your mouth.
