New International Version (NIV)
26 Those who consider themselves religious, and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues, deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. Amen, this is so true. I do not understand people who claim to be religious, but cuss worse than any sailor I have ever known!! They love to be the center of attention, and are constantly raising their voices. When I see parents out shopping with their children, and the children are acting like children, duh!! The parents lose it, they start yelling at the top of their lungs, belittle their children by calling them names, and whipping them in public. These are the same parents sometimes, that are possibly teaching Sunday School, or Children's Church, or working in the Church Nursery. Oops, am I saying to much here?? Just keeping it real people, keeping it real. Christian means, Christ within me. That does not mean Christ within me only when I am at Church, or whenever I think no one is watching. Guess what?? You are being watched 24/7. By who you ask? Your precious Saviour!! Also by your children. So, you better quickly put a rein on that tongue of yours. Lead by example, a Good example.
