Making Yourself Look Good – Part 1

“If you have played the fool and exalted yourself, or if you have planned evil, clap your hand over your mouth! Proverbs 30:32


Your tongue is just inches from your brain, but the way some of us rattle on, you’d think our mouths and minds were miles apart! James says, ‘…The tongue…corrupts the whole body…’ (James 3:5-6). Author Ramona Cramer Tucker writes: ‘I admit I’m a talker …I don’t set out to break a confidence, but somehow my mouth kicks into gear before my brain…But God takes a clear stand on gossip. He knows loose lips can ruin another person’s reputation, introduce mistrust into a relationship, encourage the gossiper to embellish their tale, and cause them to sin by being tempted to lie when confronted…I love to share news, to be “in the know”, and because I’m wired this way it’s easy for me to spread gossip under the guise of being well-meaning, even prefacing my news with “I wish you’d pray for”…But just because my sharing is well-meant doesn’t mean it’s appropriate.’ The most common reason for making someone else look bad—is to make ourselves look good! We are like the proud Pharisee in the temple who stood alone and prayed, ‘…God, I thank you that I am not like other people…’ (Luke 18:11). The writer of Proverbs says, ‘If you have done foolishly in exalting yourself, or…thought evil, lay your hand upon your mouth.’ It’s one thing to think bad thoughts—it’s another to voice them. The saying goes: ‘You can’t stop the birds from flying over your head, but you can stop them from building a nest in your hair!’ So do yourself and everybody around you a favor—practice putting your brain in gear before engaging your mouth.

Prayer Heavenly Father,

forgive me for the times I talk before I think and when I say things that I should not say.

Help me show restraint with my words, to speak those things that build others up.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen
