what's keith READING?

THE TONGUE. . . . . Psalm 141:3 James wrote that "the tongue is a small thing, but what enormous damage it can do" (James 3:5).  On the average, a person opens his mouth approximately 700 times a day to speak.  David wisely asked God to help him keep his mouth shut.  Sometimes even as he underwent persecution.  Jesus himself was silent before his accusers (Matthew 26:63).  Knowing the power of the tongue, we would do well to ask God to guard what we say so that our words will bring honor to his name.
