Yep, you read that right. A 40 day fast from sins of the tongue. No whining, complaining, criticizing, cursing, lying, gossiping, hating, revenging, dissumlating, backbiting, slandering… you get the idea.
It’s a challenge from my current sermon series, called Bite Me!
We handed out little Bite Me banks and church today, and ran out! Hundreds more will be delivered Wednesday, and we’ll probably have to order even more!
Your words create your own emotional atmosphere. Tame your tongue, heal your heart.
If you want to participate, make your own bank, and every time you vent some mouth poison, stuff it w/$5. You can give it to a local church, street mission, orphanage, or our church’s building fund. Make it something you can feel… the point is awareness.
“Whoever guards his mouth and tongue Keeps his soul from troubles.” Proverbs 21:23, NKJV.
Nice talk thru Labor Day. What do you think?
