“Show Me Your Tongue.” The purpose of this book is twofold: First, to show how our tongue serves as a mirror to reveal the condition of our soul. Karen Burton Mains writes in her book, “You are What You Say,” “We are literally what we say, even when we think we have fooled people by our carefully chosen words.”  According to her writing a word is not only a word, but it is a window to the soul.  Jesus also said, “A good person produces good words from a good heart, and an evil person produces evil words from an evil heart” (Matt. 12:35 NLT).  Second, the book encourages Christians to use their tongues to give hope and comfort to others. Though the tongue is a small organ, it has a tremendous power to build and as well as to destroy. The Apostle James compares it to a wild horse, a raging fire and a rudder that can control a wandering ship. To show the difference between a good and a bad word, an unknown author writes, “A careless word may kindle strife.  A cruel word may wreck a life.  A bitter word may hate instill;  A brutal word may smite and kill.  A gracious word may smooth the way; A joyous word may light the day.  A timely word may lessen stress; A loving word may heal and bless.”  The choice is ours.
