The tongue is the sharpest weapon as you can never take back the words that you have already spoken. The word of the Lord in Philippians 4:5 always reminds us to let our gentleness be evident to all for the Lord is near. There are times that we are mad and the words that are coming out of our mouth hurts somebody. Harsh words can be a reason of heartache and we need to be extra careful of every single word that we speak to others.
