How many tongues do you have? Subscribe To My Blog (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

One of our favorite verses is Colossians 3:17 which says "and whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, giving thanks to God the Father through Him". This verse tells us that what we say and do (our words and our actions), should be done in the name of the Lord Jesus. Most of us are ok with the understanding that we need to control our words, or more adequately put... the tongues in our mouths. But what about our other tongues, the tongues in our shoes. Every set of lace-up shoes has a tongue... that flap that goes underneath the laces. Our deeds... our actions should also represent who we are in Christ, and our shoes, complete with the shoe tongues, take us where we are going... or where we walk. So we ask ourselves "are all three of my tongues representing Christ, or are we saying one thing and doing another"? "Is my walk consistent with my words"? Think and pray about it and we will see you next month.
