Bridling our Tongues

After a long cold winter spring is finally here... in Kansas that is!!! :)  The red bud tree and the lilac bushes are bursting with color and there is even talk of putting in a garden this week!!!  This has got to be the best season of the year... as long as there aren't any tornadoes. :)
Today in Sunday school we were talking about the last judgement.  One of the things we talked about in relation to that was how everything we say is going to be taken into account when God judges us.  To me that is a very scary concept.  I know I have heard it a million times but somehow I just tend to forget it when it comes to having conversations with people.  It is so easy to let slip a foolish or mean word when I am talking.  It is something that needs to be on my mind all of the time so that I do not forget.  However, I tend to let other things be on my mind such as worldly pleasures.  When I was thinking about this I realized that I would be able to be more careful of my words and be paying more attention to what I say if I was not concentrating so much on the pleasures of this world and more on the pleasures of God.  Man's chief end is to glorify God.  So really, it comes down to how much easier it is to worship God if you are thinking of Him, instead of the things of this world.  I know I am not the only person that struggles with this and so I hope this will be helpful to others.  
Have a great spring!
