There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. Proverbs 12:18
President Trump has been in office for six months, and if there is one word that sums up his administration, it would be “drama” … endless drama.
Take this past week for example. The president openly criticized his attorney general, Jeff Sessions. He used Twitter to announce a new government position banning transgender people from the military. He hired friend Anthony Scaramucci to be the White House Communications Director, only to have Scaramucci vulgarly excoriate members of Trump’s cabinet.
Meanwhile, one of Trump’s campaign promises to repeal Obamacare failed late Thursday night due to three Republicans voting against it, one of them being John McCain, who Trump famously criticized during the campaign for being captured in Vietnam.
What do all these examples have in common? Words—ill-spoken, ill-timed, ill-toned words.
If “loose lips sink ships” then “foolish sentiments sink presidents”. We will discuss the power of the tongue this weekend on The Christian Worldview and how what we say and how and when we say it really does matter to others and to God.
