The tongue is a powerful dangerous and poisonous organ that kills and or gives life., We all possess these same powers.

Our tongues are very important because, it lets us express our thoughts emotions and actions.
But our tongues can cause death, heartbreak and pain if our hearts aren't right with God. With our tongues we have the power to give joy, understanding, and happiness to our brothers and sisters in Christ or we can our tongues to lie, cheat, steal,and to spew all kinds of obnoxious garbage about people that we don't know anything about; just by gossiping. we hold the power of death in our hand by using our tongue to spread vicious lies that might get someone killed.
Some many people have been killed by the power of the tongue, just by other people tattling on each other. Sometimes it's wise just to keep our mouth close and keep things to ourselves rather than to tell on some one and caused them their life. In order for us to keep our mouths clean from guile, we need to pray and ask God to put a watch between our mouth and keep the door of our lips closed, so we can't spread gossip and destruction.
