Be Careful Little Tongue What You Say!

Roseanne Barr

Roseanne Barr was enjoying a nice comeback in her career, with a successful reboot of her popular sitcom. Now it’s all gone. Gone in an instant, because of a racist tweet that she sent out.

Barr is apologetic, and she feels terrible about causing hundreds of people who worked on the show to be suddenly out of a job.

But the damage is done. The Bible warns us over and over about the dangers of the tongue. What we say—and tweet—has the potential to either bless or curse others. The tongue is difficult to control, but control it we must. Either that or face the consequences.

“With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.”—James 3:9-10.
