Today's Good News


11/1 Psalm 39:1-3
1 For Jeduthun, the choir director: A psalm of David. I said to myself, “I will watch what I do and not sin in what I say. I will curb my tongue when the ungodly are around me.” 2 But as I stood there in silence — not even speaking of good things — the turmoil within me grew to the bursting point. 3 My thoughts grew hot within me and began to burn, igniting a fire of words:
Unguarded ways are generally unholy ways. Sins of the tongue are great sins. Little sparks of fire ignite great torrents of words-be careful what you say. His ways are not our ways therefore we should strive to guard our ways so that the Lord will have His way with us. The strongest believers have moments of unbelief and it is especially our unbelief that we must take care not to spread by the things we way. Do the next right thing. Watch what you say.
