CG Discussion Questions:
1. Discuss the impact an untamed tongue, small but powerful can bring by referring to how negative or unkind words can affect our souls and get stuck in our minds especially from the people who mean a lot to us. Explain what bitter/salt water refers to and what it means where fresh water and salt water should not be flowing out from the same spring.
(James 3:2-12; Colossians 4:5-6)
2. From the passage “A soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a perversive tongue crushes the spirit”, discuss how we should watch the words spoken from our lips and also the tone, volume and the body language used, knowing that the power of the tongue (our words) can bring life or destroy a person.
(Genesis 1:3; Genesis 1:26a; Proverbs 18:21; Proverbs 15:4)
3. Discuss from your experience and the effect on your life or relationship where you heard words that edified, affirmed or comforted you. Considering that the words we speak can turn things around as positive words are like honeycomb, bringing sweetness to the soul and healing to the body, discuss what you can do or adjust in choosing to speak words that can bring joy, comfort, edify and not the words that can destroy or tear down someone in your family, your loved ones, or in work environment.
(Ephesians 4:29; Colossians 4:6; Proverbs 16:24; Proverbs 17:22)
