9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be. 11Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 12My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.
Yesterday my boyfriend and I had a pretty bad fight. So bad that I was still shaking during the night time. I knew that I said some pretty nasty things to him. Things he has never said to me. This morning, I read this scripture and it really spoke to me. How can we praise God and be hurtful to others with the same mouth? I always need to be mindful of what I say because it reflects the love I have for Christ.
