Hello dear friends, welcome to my website in the name of Jesus Christ . Today we will see God’s Word about Why do we need to control our tongue?
The tongue is like a spark of fire because from the tongue various evils spread all over our body which affects our whole body.
The Word of God says we must control our tongues because we will be accountable to God for our every Single word that we speak (Matthew 12:36).
This tongue can separate us from God as well as from our eternity and lead us to a destructive position that is not God’s will for us. Dear friends, we must use this tongue to praise God all the time.
Let us now look at some important bible verses that will help us to understand better concerning the need of controlling our tongue so that we may not have to spend our eternity in hell.

“Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be”
