Taming the Tongue, by Jeff Robinson, Sr.

A short but helpful look at the power of the tongue to communicate life or death to those around us. In our sinful flesh, our words can be weapons of war and bringers of pain. Thanks be to God that in our redeemed selves, we are capable of words that comfort and heal, through prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit in us. Includes some thoughts on word use in social media and a chapter on listening well. Draws heavily on outside sources but a good round-up of lots of helpful information on communication and relationships in general.
May it please our great and sovereign God, the God of peace, who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, to equip us, especially our tongues, with everything good that we may do his will, talking and singing and rejoicing and worshiping and listening and writing and communicating always, in every platform and setting, such that our words and our relationships are pleasing in his sight.
