TOPIC : THE SLANDEROUS TONGUE
“You sit and slander your own mother’s son” (Psalm 50:20).
Slandering is when we speak to the harm of another, and speak that which is not true.
Worth and eminency are commonly blasted by slander; holiness itself is no shield from slander. “For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’
The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.'” (Matthew 11:18-19). Come and let us smite him with the tongue!
A slanderer wounds another’s name—and no physician can heal these wounds! The sword does not make so deep a wound—as the tongue!
The Greek word for slanderer, signifies devil. Some think it is no great matter to slander and defame another; but know, this is to act the part of a devil.
The slanderer tongue is a two-edged sword, it wounds two at once; while the slanderer wounds another in his name, he wounds himself in his conscience.
This is contrary to Scripture, “Speak not evil one of another” (James 4:11).
God takes this evil at our hands—to speak evil of others, especially such as are eminently holy, and help to bear up the honor of religion: “Were you not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?” (Numbers 12:8).
What! My servant who has wrought so many miracles—whom I have spoken with in the mount face to face—were not you afraid to speak against him? So will God say, You must take heed of this—it is a sin your nature is very prone to!
Remember, it is no less sin to rob another of his good name—than to steal his goods or wares out of his shop! “Brothers, do not slander one another!” James 4:11
Prayer: oh Lord give me the Grace to glorify you with my tongue in Jesus Christ name.
