Questions for Study:

  • Are our tongues followers of Christ? What does that question mean?
  • Under God, of what good works is the redeemed tongue capable?
  • What means does God give us to help us govern our tongues?
  • What Bible book especially gives directions for godly communications?
  • What is the sixth petition of the Lord’s Prayer? How can sincerely taking it (or something like it) up into our mouths as we begin the day, help us in governing our speech?
