Three Dangers of the Tongue

It is Destructive (5-6)

    1. Don't be Fooled by Its Size
    2. Don't Underestimate Its Influence
      • It Can Contaminate Your Body - Your tongue can discolor or stain the whole person and picture it paints is not a pretty one. matt 15:17-20
      • It Can Effect Your Whole World - “All the evil characteristics of a fallen world, its covetousness, its idolatry, its blasphemy, its lust, and its greed”–-all are voiced by the tongue with damaging effects! Mark 7:20-23
      • It Can Bring Hell to Earth

prov 29 20, prov 12 18, prov 10 19

It is Uncontrollable (7-8)

    2. The tongue can be controlled by God alone. The tongue even comes with its own cage and yet it can not be controlled. 1jn 2 6.

It is Inconsistent (9-12)

    1. Toward God
        • Two Actions heb 13 15-16
        • One Mouth eph 5:18-20 - gal 5 15-16; 1jn 4 20-21; eph 5 4
