    No idea who said it, but it’s true :-

    Words are like toothpaste – once out, you can’t get it back where it came from.

    And of course, these days, we have to include words typed into the internet as well as physically spoken. I guess we’ve all hit the “send/submit” button a little hastily. It might have seemed ok at the time, but when we re-read … whoops! or even ouch! or oh dear what have I done?

    Thanks for the warning, brother

    I have recently been guilty of this very thing, and thank you for your reprimand. Pray that the Lord will Teach me to think before I speak.

    I am reminded of what James said,”3:6,and the tongue is a fire, a world of unrightiousness. The tongue is set among our members, staining the whole boody, setting on fire the entire course of life and set on fire by HELL”
    And then in vs 8 “but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison”, then in verse 10, “from the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers these things ought not to be so.”
    The first chapter is full of these warnings…as you well know! Only the Lord God can help tame that tongue. I am so grateful for James, as the whole book has accused me and trained me to keep short accounts with our precious Lord.
