The evening service tonight was part of a series on the tongue; each week we have been challenged to take a “tongue fast”. The fast is to abstain from areas that our tongue gets us into trouble. Tonight was specifically slander, gossip, and betraying trust. Ouch, definitely got a big “C” of convictions tonight.
Sins of the tongue get overlooked and undermined; slander, gossip and betraying trust are a cancer in the church. How often has someone been torn down confidences been broken in the name of prayer support? Maybe its more than a tongue issue…rather a love issue.
